Or, in short...

We don't have Nickserv/Chanserv/Operserv. We likes it that way.

Not to mention Hybserv2 has a number of unresolved issues and bugs, including "difficulties" in dealing with channels with % characters in them.

My point being that EFnet was primarily meant not to host any services. The answer is clear enough, we dont want services (except uhm... CHANFIX)

Actually, we had Nickserv through about 1994-1995 or so.

Again, as to the meaning of the network's name, there was a server from UC Berkeley named eris. We got rid of it. Thus, we are eris free.

Minor update, the % issue is finally resolved. There are still a number of other issues, that would force it to not work well on large networks.

As for whether nick and channel ownership is fitting with EFnet's philosophy, that's for the admins to decide.

it's amazing how often this comes up. We should make an EFnet FAQ section..

We have one; it has to be transferred over (and updated).

If you wanted to guarantee that your nick would be yours, you should've used a different network two years ago. Of course, there are ways to protect your nick, like running a detached client, etc.
