I suppose you could use my dedi for an IRC server instead of using another provider where random people come and talk non-sense or spam ;_;
You don't need to set up a whole IRC server for... one channel.
The size of this site is decent to have a good chat channel with people in 24/7, but an IRC server dedicated to it? I don't think so.
Good idea though, to have an IRC channel, I'd love to
talk in #tms all the time. :D
