Do i have to have that "please" in my rules? The word "please" does not fit in rules. You dont ask your users to apply to rules. They SHALL apply.

The "-bottler" in the topic NO LONGER works. The public source has been rewritten to ignore the -bottler in the topic. That is what 'BLotter' is, an addon for bottler that gives users more incentive on leeching and filters out the limitations that the Bottler program originally had.

It's just common courtesy to use polite language. Even if you are the admin of a server that is provided for the users for free, if you are rude, demanding, and obnoxious to your users, they will be the same to you. Remember the golden rule...

For the record, for someone who has been around on EFNet for many years, it would appear that opers and admins seem to have forgotten what brought EFNet success and it's userbase... Now, while I don't recommend or condone it, EFNet was built on a file-trading userbase (I'll stay away from the 'w' word), and now to show its appreciation, many are trying to close the door on that.... If the feelings amongst the higher powers are in agreeance about this, then so be it, but be aware that doing so goes against the foundation of EFNet's success, and may lead to the fall of EFNet, and lead to the rise of other networks.

Just my 2 pennies..

i'm just curious why you're so sure thats the reason for efnet's success? i've been around a number of years too, and thats not why most of the people i know are here....

You miss out on a whole lot by only hanging out in "file-trading" channels. In fact the only thing that keeps me on efnet is the people that I've talked to for the past 8-9 years. As long as I can remember those "file-trading" channels have always received less respect.

Sure, you know people on irc that aren't here for the file-swapping aspect of EFNet, that's a given... But the population of EFNet is consumed by a greater number of people than just those that you know.

When the split happened between the europe servers and the us servers (IRCNet , EFNet) , IRCNet was leading the userbase race for quite a bit,
but file-trading groups based their operations on EFNet, for one reason or another, thus drawing users to EFNet...

While many users were/are drawn to EFNet for this interest, a large
portion of them also engage in actual chat *gasp* as a secondary interest.
But if it weren't for something on EFNet satisfying their primary interest,
they could have achieved that secondary objective on almost any other network.
