    because they don't want to pay for the extra bandwidth to run something that they can't advertise on. In other words, it would be providing a free service that they coudln't make any money off of.
    Bandwidth? I run it from a local ISP, and I'm still cruising around with no slow downs, and I have 20+ users on my server most of the time. Waste their precious dual-T1 bandwidth... my ass.

    Yeah, me too, but us users, Me, Shrekkie, Redgore, uraloony, even er0k and Stormhawk (He has a huge as name here that I can't spell... like Rewanthal :O) have made out own, and users have migrated where they see fit. Besides if it were a big corp. they'd probably be pumping us with ad bots every five minutes.

    Peace

    Maybe it's because they know that any irc-channel turns out into the biggest soap-opera ever in no time

    I don't see anything wrong with the way things are know: people simply go to the server they want to go to, be it unerror, digital-conceptions, bytekill, pureescape,...

    If JUPM would start running an irc-server, people would still complain: "I don't want to go to no irc-server that is run by a big corporation...".
    If JUPM would start an irc-server, the people that frequent the other channels wouldn't switch to the new channel. It would hardly attract any new users since those who want to chat on irc, already are chatting on irc. If JUPM starts a new irc-channel, JUPM is responsible for whatever goes on in there. It would take less than two weeks before someone tries to take the server down, and then what would happen is what has happened in the past: "we'd" try to get even.

    Just leave things like they are... no worries, no headaches, everybody happy.

    yeah, leave things as they are. I don't want to share my irc with Neg, he smells like cheese.
