Most asians are a pain in the arse to even hold a conversation with, I don't understand them, and they don't understand me :p
I know you are speaking kind of tongue-in-cheek here, but I think it would be fine if there were more asian users. Just because you can't communicate with them doesn't mean they shouldn't be allowed on the network, and that they can't communicate perfectly well with each other in their own channels. I think that if there were more users from these countries, then there would be more large channels for them to hang out in and chat in their own language, and not bother people who don't understand them (like now). I remember when irc.exodus.co.jp was linked up a couple years ago and was never opened. I was really hoping for that one (since I'm in Japan).

Thank you captain obvious :P

The problem is when they start to join other channels, to try and find something or they need some help with something... etc. its at that point that it becomes an arse to communicate with them :?

Going back to what you said... if the asians that came on from new asian server(s) simply went into their own channels, it would be pointless, they may as well simply create an asian based network...
I can't see why they would want to link up to EFnet when they are going to stick with their own kind anyway... which, lets face it, they usually do...

To be honest, I like the fact that EFnet is EU and US, its a very nice combernation, I don't think adding other continants would work as well as this already existing comanation.

Thats my opinion anyway.

Note: Sorry if anything I have said is classed by you as racist, its not my intention at all, I'm not racist at all, I can't see the point in it. ;)

you don't seem to be too open minded about this.

you know, we have german servers, norwegian severs, finnish servers, etc, etc. i can guarantee not everyone on those servers speaks english.

and there are probably quite a few that area also bi-lingual. so who's to say we can't have asian or african servers? sure, they speak a different language, but some of them speak english, and some people in US/CA/EU are bi-lingual and would be able to speak to them in their native language.

i'd say the more diversity the better.

/me slaps deww hehe.

Yeah okay so I'm not very open minded about it, simply because I don't see the point in it...

And like I said EU (including UK) and US works very well together, I don't think JP would work in the same way... The main reason this works so well is most of the EU already speak english (despite what you say, I've never met someone on irc from EU who doesn't speak english), its when the communication breaks down that I find I start to have problems with users...

I mean is it just me who finds Kuwait users annoying as hell :p hehe, and don't even get me started on Norweagens, especially that sealie... jeeez ;)

Hehe, this is simply my opinion, don't forget that :)

Btw, I thought .ca's primary language was french so what are you going on about? even the .ca servers are in english, and english speaking...

Enjoy.

canada has 2 official languages, english and french. most regions have english as the primary language, but are required to take 1-2 years of french in school.
afaik, only in quebec are all signs required to be in both english and french, and also the place where you're most likely to find people that don't speak english, or speak it as a second language.

and if you go to undernet, most users say the same things about .ro

i still don't think we should ban an entire country (or continent), petition or no

I'm more of an IRCnet user then EFnet
On IRCnet it's more *.pl and the lame italians that give problems not so mutch people from Norway.

On ircnet we have the same problem with *.it that you have with *.no on EFnet lame italians. Joining en parting channels al the time, always speaking italian on english channels and keep speeking italians also after warnings and using lame scripts with lame colors :evil:

Maybe good idea to give them there own *.it and *.no irc network ;)
