Chatted up two random strangers in a normally-dead IRC channel today. First
time using IRC for both of them.
Contrary to what you might expect from someone as trollish and jaded as
myself, I try to be kind to people when they're trying something new. Not a
lot of people discover IRC for the first time in 2018.
I don't think I'll ever really quit using it. Too many good times. I'll
always wind up somewhere, with someone, even if I wind up drifting for a long
time. Met Dawn there, and almost everyone I consider to be a friend anymore.
The internet is going to shit in a shitsock, and IRC is one of the few
bastions of the way things used to be, and arguably, the way they ought to be.
