That's pretty unfortunate. I know some other projects have left 
Freenode, but I like their stated philosophy. io_error and masquerade 
have been set up with proper access, feel free to continue to send me 
suggestions off-list, someone in a non-US timezone would probably be good.

Despite this thread, a few folks seem to have already moved to another 
channel, which coincidentally might help some of the aforementioned 
maturity problems. When I look now #wordpress has 143 nicks in it, so I 
don't think there is any worrying changes and I think we can put this 
issue to rest.
