IRC Hint: If you do this you're an idiot

(5:01:10 PM) Yupingas_IWBTG [Mibbit@c80-216-255-159.bredband.comhem.se] entered the room.
(5:01:16 PM) Yupingas_IWBTG: HI PEOPLE.
(5:01:32 PM) Yupingas_IWBTG: Okay fine, fuck off.
(5:01:47 PM) Yupingas_IWBTG left the room (quit: Quit: Client Exited).

Let just look at the time stamps.

Enter. Wait 5 seconds. Say hi. Wait 15 seconds. Tell everyone to fuck off for not saying anything. Wait 15 seconds. Leave.

Total actual time: 37 seconds.

If you expect to go into an irc channel and get a response in 37 seconds, you are a fucking moron. So many people who came in and asked for me missed out on talking to me because they couldn't wait a minute. I'm busy and a lot of people on IRC idle (that means we're not staring at the screen 24 hours a day).

What sort of ADD motherfucker do you have to be to expect engaging discussion in 37 seconds? I don't answer most of my IMs in 37 seconds!

This happens all the time and I'm tempted to ban people who do it just to make a point.

Did you not see the discussion we had last night?

That was...intense, to say the least.

He wasn't there for it, actually. He was logged out the entire time.

I have a legitimate reason as I travel some three hours every work day.

HE WAS LOGGED OUT?

That was probably the best use of the IRC channel, ever.

Kayin, I think Yuping did it was a joke since JCM was complaining about a nub doing the exact same thing.

Possibly! But it still happens all the goddamn time, so it's a worthwhile topic.
If you're using the chat, you could just leave it open in another tab, and check it every so often to see if anyone has responded. That's pretty much what I do.

And if your web browser doesn't let you have multiple tabs, YOU"RE DOING IT WRONG.

I was the one doing the complaining, and said nub showed up later that convo.

Alright, can you please stop making a bunch of one-word posts that don't really add much to the discussion? :/
