andrew lee just seized over 700 channels on freenode because they mentioned libera.chat in their topic.

This includes projects like openbsd, wikimedia, FOSDEM, etc.

archive.is/uHw1g shows 720 channels that match what is being checked.

here's an example log: gist.github.com/pushcx/ab2a1d5

boost this if you care about foss in any way.

@kline I’m not sure I’m ever going to get used to seeing your avatar used as a preview link for this sort of thing hitting Hacker News.

@kline To be fair, it does very much resemble my own expression whenever I read anything about leenode.

@kline

NewFreeNode: We love Freeze Peach!
Us: put pointer to libera.chat in /topic to help users
NewFreeNode: Not like that!

25-05-2021 22:59:32 < freenodecom!~com@freenode/staff: This channel has been reopened with respect to the communities and new users. The topic is in violation of freenode policy: freenode.net/policies

@kline #fosdem sent an email out announcing the move off #freenode to #liberachat now.

No channels with fosdem in the name on freenode are associated with fosdem now.

@kline thanks for your information. Thanks to you, now I understand why recently big projects I saw talked about Freenode and @liberachat seriously.

@kline that’s really scary, well that’ll drive the exodus.
