Installing(!) an IRC client and diving into the world of IRC is an 
investment.  Possibly so long ago that you made that investment that you 
have forgotten, but the investment is real.

I still remember how clumsy I felt with IRC back in 2004 when I started 
using IRC (in order to reach the the people in same room as me when I 
joined my first debconf - debconf4 in Brazil).  It was quite an 
investment for me back then to install an IRC client (thanks for the 
help, Micah!), and I am sure I broke some rules of conduct when I 
started chatting.

I agree that it makes good sense why no good comes out of above message, 
but I disagree that there could be no investment involved.
