Re: Terence's point about the irc clients, it's true. To get all clients to behave this way across multiple systems (how many newbies IRC from Windows/OSX because their ubuntu is b0rked?) is incredibly difficult. Technical solutions to social problems always are. It took a ages and lots of effort to get all the irc clients to use freenode's 8001 port as default (for the freenode/ubuntu server pre-sets) to stop the NAT exploits being such an enourmous burden etc.
