Enough people.  It is quite obvious that IRC is a religious topic to a LOT
of people.  My original response and Richards original email were intended
as sarcasm.  It is not at all uncommon for IRC networks to be under
attack.  Since some people take IRC *MUCH* more seriously than one can
imagine (keep the death threats coming) I guess we can't be sarcastic when
someone mentions IRC.

The email that is quoted above from Richard is obviously an apology for
getting involved in the discussion.  I can't imaging why you would attack
him for such.  I apologise for getting into the discussion.  Attack me for
doing so if you must.  Do it off list.
