      I do know groups who have a mailing list and slack/fb and claim
the more "progressive users" prefer the more "progressive social media
channels" (facebook/slack). For those concerned that people can find
what you did on irc, do you really think what is posted on slack is
private? It is as private as any social media thingie out there.

FYI, in a previous job we ran our own internal irc, which was great
when we had to do support (level 1 on the phone could be feeding us
all with the info and question and one of us could be providing
answer. Caller would be none of the wiser).
