I prefer to keep things like this in the channel -- I like activity. 
It's over a long period of time so it's not like 15 people will suddenly 
be swarming the channel, while others are attempting to do something 
else. Besides, if your hanging out with us, you can be hacking :-p

That said, I'm happy to change it if it becomes an issue.
