Absence of certain features in IRC considered a feature https://drewdevault.com/2019/07/01/Absence-of-features-in-IRC.html
@angristan Difficult thing. I understand this point of view and agree with many aspects, yet I wonder whether it's a matter of user count. Do we accept losing a large crowd (majority?) of users to proprietary platforms like Slack just to make sure we cover a feature such as an up-to-date communication facility still working on 30+ years old hardware (which might be of relevance just to a very small crowd)? 😕
