I want to encourage anyone who has had trouble with IRC in the past to
join #ubuntu-women and say hello. We specifically try to be easy on
new folks and help ease people into the main Ubuntu channels - and
it's also a great place to say "Hey, someone said $this in another
channel, how should I react?" There are a lot of misunderstandings on
IRC, and problems can escalate very quickly, so it's useful to have
others to bounce things off of, I've been using IRC for a decade now
and even I need some perspective sometimes.

And I wrote one a while back specifically for getting on #ubuntu-women
on freenode:


(even includes an etiquette section, which is useful all over IRC)
