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 wow, it happened to , which used to be a 1000 user channel, down to maybe 600 with a mention of libera.chat.

Now down to 26 very pissed off users after Lee seized control and retopiced.

@kline one out of every 330 irc users was on ! it was an institution. I hope everyone finds their way to libera.chat
