Re: lilo's 'On not being a street person.'

Lilo, I wasn't challenging you, or you situation. I was merely pointing out that sending a global message, daily, pointing to your personal blog isn't likely to get you may friends.

I'm of the opinion that system-wide messages should be reserved for important messages somehow related to the system, that effect most users. There'd be a lot less antagonism if it weren't pushed in peoples faces, regularly. Possibly channel information/onjoin for any of your channels, a link from the openprojects.net webpage (if one doesn't already exist) and/or comments in the motd are all valid ways of presenting the same information, and not a likely to raise people's ire.

Before I get labed as a troll, or being anti-lilo, I'll freely admit he has done a good job with OPN, and it is a shame to hear that he is out of work. In a Utopian society, those who could provide a good service would be justly rewarded.

Oh, and those morons who were calling me a troll: get a life.
