Especially if an IRC debate organiser posts what looks like flamebait.
Some prefer email. Some prefer IRC. Let's cater for both, OK?
Myself, I find email more reliable and I think it's important to
explore my choice, but I like seeing the interaction of a good
IRC debate. It would be really cool if audio debates happen,
but even IRC debates seem tricky to schedule and run.
