Could Phoenix have picked a worse chat server? I say no.

Sad but true, this chat server seems to SUCK. Surely Phoenix had his reasons for picking this server, so not to mob against him or anything, but this server has had a lot of problems.

Did you know the server scans your computer for proxy leaks at connection time?

I don't mind critisism, but please, do make it constructive. Like REASONS for why this server is so bad. It's the most reliable and non-splitting IRC server I've ever been on, I've never been thrown out of it, and I've never had trouble to connect, and uptime seems to be rather close to 99%, so I'm pleased with my choice. I don't think I'm the only one who would like some reasons for your angry remark. And I would also like to know if others have trouble connecting to the server.

I know I was thrown out of the chat last night, along with everyone else. Fortunately, the majority of us returned.

Me too, and I was blocked from getting back in for about 16 hours.

Well, a chat server, like any other server (and computer), needs to restart once in a while.. which I assume it did. Or something like that.

I've had problems with my IE freezing up when I try to enter the room.
But I think it's ok, quit whining!

I'm a man, but I can change, if I have to.I guess. 
I had that problem too... It's probably unrelated, IE always freezes up...

You may be right, but it DOES crash out a hell of a lot. I don't think that's the server, but IE being pooor at handling chat.
I don't care, I hate computers. I am John Connor.

You want reasons? I can think of two:
1. The server resets like every other day (it has reset twice in the past three days i've been on it), kicking everybody off for a couple minutes.
2. It's very kick/block happy and doesn't take lightly to the slightest flooding, which could be unintentional.

In short, it's not horrible, but it could be better
