Sorry if you interpreted what I said that way, but I never called it a
closed forum. The whole point is that I know exactly who is in the room
(and therefor who is seeing what I'm writing) at the time I say

I'd respond to the rest of what you said, but it seemed to all be based on
some thought that I believe #evolt is my private chat room and that
certain people can't join it... even though that can because it's a public
forum... or something. Point is, that's not what I said.

'create accountability'? geez.

I don't talk about evolt stuff in #evolt most of the time. I was talking
about personal issues here. Like breaking up with my girlfriend.

So, no more bots?

That sucks. You should try popping in some more. You've gotten the wrong
idea of #evolt.
