The [dangers] of IRC (not for the faint-hearted..) - remember, the person you are talking to could be [anyone].
A previous version of this page came up with the following intriguing idea:
Is the 'In Relay Chat' version to be used only when initiating discussions while in HumanInterfaceMode? then? - Kazuhiko This sounds like a name for someone playing a game of ChineseWhispers? --Mjb67
CorkScrew ponders IRC ChineseWhispers?. How about everyone randomly ignore half the rest of the channel? Would make distributing information through the channel most intriguing.
CorkScrew is very surprised that there isn't a ToothyCat IRC channel and has started one at #toothycat on kern.srcf.ucam.org:6667. If you don't have a clue but want to get set up, free IRC tech support is available from email@example.com on MSN Messenger
