An analysis of IRC traffic shows that 99.9% of it is illegal. Although only the busiest channels on the busiest servers were covered, this analysis casts IRC in a very unfavorable light. In fact, it’s a wonder the media doesn’t turn public opinion against IRC in a more vigorous manner (as they did with “hackers”). As it stands right now, most people don’t even know what IRC is…
To help you learn a bit more about IRC and the special place it occupies in the hearts of many, I point you to Bash.org. Bash.org is a quote database, storing favorite quotes from countless IRC chats. I recommend reading the Top 100. NOTE: profanity is used liberally in many quotes.
