... if your an oper, an admin, or someone in charge, and you read this post..
please REPLY and tell me why you don't close these channels.
be precise and don't post a book with answers turning around the question...
If you need solutions, suggestions. let us know.. some undernet users may have more ideas and skills to do this then you guys do,
i say that cauz, look at us.... ( Undernet ) we are the irc network that keeps the most "junk" on our servers, and WE ALLOW IT!!!...
how lame is that ?? you tell me.
I am NOT "an oper, an admin, or someone in charge" but I think it's safe to say:
1. Requesting one of them reply to your post with, "be precise and don't post a book with answers turning around the question" pretty much guarantees no one will reply. Not because they don't want to. It's the completely inconsiderate and somewhat belligerent tone of your post (or do I have those backwards?)
2. I don't think I've seen anything anywhere that states, "As an Undernet oper/admin/someone in charge, you are expected to close warez/credit card/e-trade(?) channels." If you want a reply, don't tell someone what their job is, ESPECIALLY when you're not accurate.
3. I believe most opers have earned their position. "If you need solutions, suggestions. let us know.. ," and, "something must be done,"coming from someone who has never proven themselves even competent in said matters (only referring to your posts here on the forum, which are almost entirely of the Jump-On-The-Bandwagon sort,) is not going to get what you want done.
4. While many Undernet users "may have more ideas and skills to do this then you guys do," usually only those not so standoffish are eventually enlisted to help with any task.
5. Just for my information (yeah, I'm warped,) why is this so important to you? The vast majority of people I see bitching on this thread already know how to script their way around it, or know where to get a script to accomplish the task. You all do know EVERY position of authority is still volunteer, right?
6. Finally, "and WE ALLOW IT!!!..." No, "we" don't. Not preventing something from happening is not the same as allowing it. I agree there are some simple tools to prevent some of the abuse occurring on Undernet, but not using such tools should not be taken to infer acceptance. Have you read your MOTD or AUP lately? Your use of the services are an acceptance of them. An abuser is simply risking (s)he won't get caught (or penalized.)
Sorry for the rant,
