Okay. I read and re-read my posts and i reached the conclusion that, for the time being, i kinda covered everything i had on my mind. If the case i tried to make is not compelling enough i'll have to admit there's not much else i can do. After all, UNDERNET is not mine, it belongs to the ones who ha...

Well, in this specific case no, i wouldn't sue you, i would contact you and tell you that gyll is my name, that i am well-known as gyll, and as such i will grant you permission to use my name there under this and that condition. It seems only natural to me. (of course, if i'm gyll and nobody knows m...

Stefano, i thought the relation is pretty obvious: 1) The similarity of name allocation policies on the Internet and UNDERNET (first-come first-served) 2) Abusing NAMES on an "information superhighway" (no matter it's UNDERNET or Internet) 3) Ways to prevent abusing NAMES (the UN pannel is the metho...

Jeep, first: the topic being discussed before does not preculde it from being re-discussed second: look at this as re-addressing the topic, but this time a solution is suggested third: don't point that thingy at me! you're too far away to reach me anyways. fourth: this is the only reply you'll get f...

BAY, you either didn't read my previous post, or you didn't understand it. My problem resides with the fact that *i believe* names *should remain public properties*, so why on earth do you keep comparing a channel with my private appartment? You want a private appartment, buy one in an appartment bl...

Better yet, let me conceptualize: what am i suggesting? 1) Current UNDERNET policies remain valid *only* for channels whith names encolsed in [] (or whatever). 2) A set of liberalism-enforcement policies to be set forth for the rest of the channels. Examples (though this will definitely require some...

Kid, I don't believe this... you also don't get my point. What's the topic of this forum? "How can we improve undernet". What i'm talking about in here is exactly *changing* the operation of the channel, i know very well what its *current* set of rules is.

Razvanet, i'm afraid you're missing my point here. I am talking about the spirit of free speach. Unless this spirit is saveguarded the UNDERNET will incementally be rendered useless. Quote from you:"it also gives you a sign that in #programming you might not find programming but something else". *TH...

I think this is ABUSE!

I see it happening more and more often, and it's an *extremely* frustrating experience. The latest in the list is the #programming channel, that doesn't allow users to join unless they have a keyword from the channel ops (other high-profile-name channels such as #politics regularly ban entire domain...
