who remembers the IRC wars over whether or not away nicks were acceptable

@Elizafox (they weren't in the 00s because every fucker and their dog has bouncers now and away messages, fucks sake)

@Elizafox I never understood away nicks. if you don't respond you are away.

@Elizafox probably means you are old if you can remember.

Or the bots that auto-kicked you if you sent an away message

@Elizafox there was no war. Away nicks were never acceptable.

@Elizafox i’m mortified to learn they were possibly a faux pas
