The problem is that the high amount of disconnection one gets from freenode
makes this a pain, especially as it is not clear for clients like irssi when
you are allowed to post or not, as the error message does not appear in the
/query channel, but in the log one, and it doesn't even specify who you tried
to /query and was blocked.

You mentioned some auto-identify scripts, care to give an example of how that
would work and respond to both above problems ? 

Also, i guess that if you allow none-reg /querying, this leaves you open to
wide amount of irc-spam that has been circulating in freenode, and supposedly
oftc is (still) less vulnerable to this.

I personally am on both networks, and probably won't notice much, but the
private /query problem sure has been a pain.
