Did you read the last bit? You should. Also, I don't really care if you ever saw something like that or not, I remember addressing such an issue with losi posting tech stuff in #lounge with #tech existing, justifying it with the 'nobody else was there so it's fine'. I'm trying to address this exact behavior ahead of time so it doesn't occur again.

The fact there's no FAQ, rules or anything really seems out of place, but I'm with Compa on this one. We should really establish a thread with rules once and for all so there's no doubt as to what is and what isn't allowed. I'll talk to Neko about it.
