That might be so now, but if global voting voted in hidden links and remove all form of public information regarding how the network is routed you would have toseiki wrote:I'm strongly against flattened links, and hidden servernames. I think that's by far the lamest thing undernet has done in a long time.. (update, actually I think the nicklength change was even more lame, and recent).
on ircd.servercentral.net I don't allow servers to hide themselves or the routing hierarcy behind them. I host the map.efnet.info bot, and don't plan on changing my ways anytime soon. soo, plan on enjoying the pretty map for years to come.
I dont fancy much removing this information from the users either. I like the fact that clued users of our network can see how servers are linked to get closest to eachother to reduce lag and chances of splits. But we have seen in the past that client server isp`s also hosting hubs gets attacked more then the ones that doesnt, so hiding hubs from links and have a flat structure of it can help those im all for it.
And when it comes to what UnderNet has done, i hate it to. Thats why i said in a previous post that we dont need to take it all the way like UnderNet has, but just remove this one option if we decide to do something.
