Why do people place a couple of words on a new topic without adding any substance? It makes me think there is some more content added when there isn't.

Adding a couple of meaningless words hurts this process. Well, IMHO it does. -- nw

Hey, is there anyone who would have some linkage or would be willing to do a writeup discussing the significance, relevance, usefulness or popularity of IRC? There are people out there who, when facing a "Using IRC" topic, would ask "why bother?" -- rack
