Observation: collapsing may be designed so that it doesn't loose information. Hiding will always loose information.
Whether that lost information is useful or not is the main question here.
@emersion i said "collapsed", but in truth what i do is filter them entirely in weechat and occasionally use the hotkey to toggle filters if i need to see them for some reason.
what i _want_ is for joins/parts not to be displayed in-band in the channel. a separate pane or something i can toggle would be ideal.
