I have been known to make sport of people on IRC, it’s one of my pastimes. But usually someone has to catch my attention to be targeted. Let’s talk about one of my pet peeves: Away messages and notifications. Seriously. It makes sense if you’re a channel regular, or staff, or really anyone people give two shits about, but if you’re just a randumb (My term for those sub-voice users who just stumble into the channel.) there’s no fucking reason for it. This is where our story begins.
<exReality|afk> i cant change my nick without leaving the chan
* Parts: exReality|afk (~exReality@test.a.ban)
* Joins: exReality (~exReality@test.a.ban)
<exReality> woops left the wrong channel
<unmei> a) register b) it’s probably a +M channel blocking you …
<exReality> yeah i have to link the nick
<exReality> or group…
<kyouma87> how’s that for you?
<+Bakamoichigei> Why the fuck do you think anyone cares if you’re AFK?
<unmei> yeah, the command is group
<+Bakamoichigei> I’m the most conceited son of a bitch here, and I -know- no one cares if -I’m- away.
<exReality> i play this game called erep
<exReality> people keep pming me
Hmmm, erep? Could it be? I should note that in this channel erepublik is a banword because people keep coming in and spamming URLs. I don’t actually know what the site is, but after his next response, I figure it’s some stupidfuck game like mafia wars and that other shit. Which only made me want the inevitable outcome even more…
<+Bakamoichigei> What’s that?
<exReality> its on the same server
<exReality> some political web browser game
<+Bakamoichigei> Got a link or something?
* Athena sets mode: +b *!*@test.a.ban
* exReality was kicked by Athena (Watch your language!)
<+Bakamoichigei> I am a golden god.
<&jdp> fucking ( ｀ー´)八(｀ー´ ) ＨＩ５
I do so love being right, and evil.
I’m not always an asshole though, I do high comedy as well, if I do say so myself.
<@cardslash02> flash it sounds like you manage the same software i used to work under at a call center
<@cardslash02> what’s it called?
<@cardslash02> the software that handles call volumes
<&Bakamoichigei> inb4 that’s what it’s called and we’re about to reenact “Who’s on first?”
<&FlashGordon> [21:25] (@cardslash02) the software that handles call volumes
<&FlashGordon> not certain
<@cardslash02> do you use it yourself?
<&FlashGordon> only team managers and supervisors are made familiar with such software
<&FlashGordon> i use clarify
<@cardslash02> oh dear
<@cardslash02> it is called clarify
<&Bakamoichigei> “What software do you use?” “Clarify.” “The software that handles call volumes.” “Not Certain.” “Yeah, I know Certain, we use it for payroll. So what do you use for call volumes?” “Clarify.” “The software you use!”
