Getting spammed by random users wouldn't bother me if I could therefor
increase the active participation in the LoCo. I think this would probably
work better for those not in the US. For the US ones, they would go to the
US LoCo chan and there we would need like WalMart greaters :)

Now the bad part, which isn't spam, but not all channels are super active
all of the time. With this in mind, someone might join the channel, do the
whole HELLO!?!?! and GOODBYE!?!?! thing in like 2 minutes time.
