I am not in IRC very frequently, but I have been there often enough to
be convinced that this is very wrong.  There's a big social difference
between mailing lists and IRC.  And both are different to meeting in

Should we found a group that collects money to pay the DPL's phone bill
if he needs to give certain fellow DDs a call?
