IRC 的分析

Slashdot 的新聞:Is IRC All Bad?,另外一個比較聳動的標題是:IRC Analysis – 99.9% Illegal?

作者找了十個最大的 ircnet 連上去,然後每個 ircnet 挑六個最大的 public channel 觀察 36 小時。其中文章內有一段很有趣的 quote:

If you are affiliated with any government, police. ANTI-Piracy Group, RIAA, MPAA, FBI, movie production company/distribution company or related groups you are violating code 431.322.12 of the Internet Privacy Act signed by Bill Clinton in 1995,Therefore you CANNOT threaten our ISP(s),person(s) or company storing these file and cannot :prosecute anyone. And you must LEAVE NOW.
