What the hell????
Okay, I just got Mirc tonight. I tried it out. I finally figured out to
type "goth". I ended up getting in a room called something like "goth
viagra".
It was hell.
Pure and simple.
The people were horrible. I got kicked for no reason. The person said
"don't disagree with me". Then I got kicked a couple more times for no
reason. What's that???
I tried to ask why everyone was so abrasive, I was told to f*ck off and
die.
Tell me nobody here goes by "noctem" or "mmmcc". Horrible people.

Please, tell me there is more to IRC than this. Tell me there are decent
groups. Frig I feel horrible after that whole thing. :(
If that's all there is, I'm deleting Mirc.

Sounds like #gothic. They are rather rude and childish at times there.
There are a few really cool people in #gothic, but for the most part,
it's not work your time.

Try #altgothic...That seems like the natural choice for a group, eh?:)
Most of the goth groups are on invisible <secret> mode because well, it
keeps the mansonites out most of the time, and people like Joe Bob who
wants to be an ass is less likely to find the group.

you will find alot of regulars from AG in #altgothic, and it seems like a
pretty nice place, for the most part.

Okay, here's what to do.

1) In the Setup window, select an EfNet server.
2) When you connect, type /join #altgothic
3) Boggle at the number of a.g. regulars you can now chat to.
4) Don't forget to say hello.

Alternatively, visit #gothik or #goths on the Undernet, where I will be
happy to show you around (if I'm on at all that is... bloody UK phone
charges), or #goth on the same server, where the person to say hi to is
TonyGirl (aka Leo).

Click on the button in the toolbar with the folder icon. Choose an
EFNet server (beware the Missouri one, it doesn't have any spam
rules, so you'll have to build up a big /ignore list). Click "Connect
to IRC server!". Then type /join #altgothic in the status window.

Congratulations, you just found the best channel on IRC (IMNSHO).

You'll find yourself feeling much better once you've found #altgothic.

Getting kicked is the wors'tist feeling in the world. I have
to fight this vomit rising in my throat every time I try to
go on IRC. I've been on twice in about a year.

I used to go onto EFnet's #gothic for about 5 years mostly
on Saturday night before I would go out. I met really nice
people most who live in San Francisco now. It was like a
#gothic convergence last year, really.

I even met the group that created the bots and ran the
channel, also very nice, Erin? :)

But Play42Day and Neumann didn't like what I had to say one
night and kick banned me. I've been kicked all the time for
about 5 years but never banned. Most of the things I type
are pure Trollish but in silly fun. I was more than hurt for
being banned. I really wanted to kill them. Then I got a
hold of myself. I was planning murder for real. So I said,
"fuck this. IRC isn't worth it." It's not Neumann's and
Play42Day's complete fault. It's the way IRC is set up. They
kick-banned me because I was being an asshole. IRC turns
everybody into assholes. :)

That's really dumb. Getting pissed off at somebody you've
never met because they kick/banned you. Going and stalking
them for two weeks before you put a bullet in their heads
walking through an airport. It's best to just not play on
IRC too much. Perhaps an hour a week.

Being an asshole isn't a rule. It's a problem. That's why I go to

#gothic is not all that bad. At all. No worse than alt.gothic in it's
prime, anyway. ;)

That's always a good idea...the last time I went there I was kick/banned for my
name being spelled "necroangl"(see, IRC Only allows 9 characters....;)) with

'take on'? You can nail lime jello to the ceiling only so firmly and no

clear inability to communicate in a medium where he doesn't wield the /bk,

They are a sweet bunch, aren't they? ;) I remember getting kickbanned once for
my nickname being "lame" (by someone who's nick was a variation of
"vampire". HA! *I'm* lame?), and once for doing a !seen on a RL friend of mine
who likes that channel for some strange reason. I have also been kicked there
for various STUPID reasons.

Oh, for christ's sake.

WE started it, guys. DOn't go jumping down this guy's throat just 'cause
he's in our turf. If I was in #gothic and they started going on about how
elitist and immature *we* were, I'd have a say too...

And we're not right. Neither would they be.

Oh, yeah, I'm definitely a mallgoth, yupyup. Sure. <nods head> Gee,
how'd you guess?

Which is why I have "IRC" and a couple of likely to come up, related
subjects [1] killfiled on alt.gothic.

But silly me, I was checking my killfiles to see if anything anything
worthwhile was getting inadvertently filtered out. And then, sillier me, I
looked in on *this* thread.

From now on, I'm going to trust in my killfile. [2]


[1] About two or three words starting with #.
[2] And stay the fuck away from IRC. [3]
[3] Yeah, I *am* in kind of a pissy mood this morning again. Why do you
ask?

> WE started it, guys.

I hate to correct you here Charlotte, BUT we didn't go into #gothic and
start saying "Oh well, you guys are all mall rats"

We said it here, in AG, which being most of the people who are here and
go on IRC go to #altgothic.

Besides, Pan has a point, the people in there can be downright assholish
for no reason.

I have never been kicked from #gothic, and you know what? I never will,
because I don't even go in there anymore. I saw how they treated other
people who didn't do a damn thing to them.

DOn't go jumping down this guy's throat just 'cause
> he's in our turf.

Why not? WE didn't invade HIS turf. Understand?

If I was in #gothic and they started going on about how
> elitist and immature *we* were, I'd have a say too...

I could care less what most of the denizens of #gothic think. I mean,
what thoughts they could think up in between trying to get into
everyone's pants and all the self absorbed thought they have.

I can name on one hand the people that I think are interesting and fun to
talk to that go to #gothic. Uhlume and Imperia. That's about it. I
probably forgot a person or two, but that's IT. The channel is a waste of
time, and the people in there are a waste of flesh, for the most part.
And I'm talking about the ops.

>
> And we're not right. Neither would they be.

My OPINION is right...because it's mine, and it's not absolute. And my
OPINION of people in #gothic is that they are nothing more than monkeys
typing.

But it doesn't matter. I stuck up for Pan because I feel Pan is right. If
you have a problem with it Charlotte, then that's your deal. I'm not
going to tell you your aren't correct for having the opinions you do, and
I have every right to express my opinions on the subject.

Oh hell, I don't even get on IRC that much anyway.

I'm not slamming #ag. (after all, I visit there.)
I'm just saying that: it's all fluffy and it's all time consuming.
As is what I'm doing right now...

Well, if you say so.
But the more "serious" discussion happen on the newsgroups.
I really don't think you're going to convince anyone otherwise.

(who admits that it definitely has something to do w/ the medium; i.e.
it's hard to have a "serious" discussion when 47 people are all typing
at the same time)

For a flame to be truly effective has to demonstrate some
sort of insight into the thing or person it's flaming. Which is the main
reason why TSM was masterful where so many others, who fall back on new
and admittedly interesting vulgarities, fail. Far less effective than that
is pulling out catch words and applying them on oblvious assumptions.
