Many people seeking immediate assistance in #wordpress are not familiar
with IRC commands, and will not know how to do this on a regular basis.
 Plus, people asking for help shouldn't have to see mindamp's drivel to
begin with, as it might seriously turn them away from IRC support; which
would be a real shame, because the channel has been a high-quality
resource for a lot of people.
