As do I. It's ridiculous. We're losing people in droves; very good
people, at that (both in personality and contribution). It's an IRC
channel, Ops are needed *and* expected (I've seen many people come in
and wonder where the ops are). If you don't care, Matt, then hand the
reigns over to someone else and let it be what it is. If not, appoint
a few ops. It's not hurting you or anyone else to do so.
