I'd love to see io_error, masquerade, and tunicwriter as three people
who have access to ops.

In the long term, yes, Freenode needs to be involved. But I can't
describe how frustrating it is to get a hold of a freenode staffer in a
good amount of time - last time I tried when #wordpress was trolled, it
took about 5 minutes of flooding to get a hold of someone who could
actually do something, and I think in the end it turned out to be lilo.
We _need_ an ops dude in there to temporarily +m until a freenode
staffer can be contacted, or +b if it's an isolated troller.
