in reply to YACR (Yet Another Chatterbox Request)

personally, I find the temptation to treat the chatterbox like IRC pretty hard to resist. Wouldn't it be nice if there were a #perlmonks channel on some server somewhere? And if there is, that perhaps that could be better advertised?

I suppose there's an accessibility issue with IRC (i.e. you need something other than just a web browser to use it; but then, that's already the case with the chatterbox clients)

Surely the collective we is not so opposed to, say, a java client accessible through a webpage that having a channel like that wouldn't be feasible.

Philosophy can be made out of anything -- or less

    Actually, there is, and has been for sometime, a #perlmonks on the SlashNet servers. It was created by chromatic.

    I stand definitely opposed.

    At home and at work I am behind different firewalls which I do not control. While I could get around them, I prefer not to. Therefore IRC or random new protocols are and shall remain inaccessible to me. (In practice if not in theory.)
