Few moments ago I tried logging in from mibbit to Freenode. I was presented with a neat little message “Nick already in use”!
As most of my online chaps on freenode know my nick is `krish`, I logged in with `realkrish` and politely pm’ed the current user of `krish` to change his nick. Here’s the conversation….
I could have just ghosted him without giving any notice, but didn’t want to abruptly end any important conversation that guy must have been into.
Notice the way he warns about reporting to cybercrime division; for what? Asking you to stop using my nick!
Now wonder why such nutheads dont understand when people approach them politely.
@email@example.com – I hope you learn net-etiquette soon.
