The @gnome community faced some IRC spam yesterday which impacted the @matrix side of our community as well.

It would be easy to just say "IRC bad!" and call it a day. Reality is a bit more complex.

Here's my view about what happened, where we failed and how we can try to make IRC spam less of a problem all while keeping a premium experience on Matrix.

@thibaultamartin @gnome @matrix "IRC is not the problem, it's just that every useable IRC setup facilitates this kind of abuse" is the kind of logic I'd expect from someone scared of IRC fanatics when discussing its shortcomings.
