LOL.  I'm perplexed by what appears to me to be a resurgence of IRC for
support - essentially, ever since I started using Ubuntu, where the devs
use IRC a lot, I've been finding more and more software projects using IRC. 
I hate it - I can't stand the interleaving of discussion.  Unlike
newsgroups, which are like a private discussion (with a million people
eavesdropping, and occasionally butting in), it's like trying to hold a
conversation in a room full of people shouting at the top of their lungs.
