Difficult to do actually on the channel - I can teach thepfy
to respond to a question (eg
<thepfy>I archive public conversations here for troubleshooting
	purposes. Please see http://www.dataprotection.gov.uk
	for more info

but other users can over-write that.

Garrett's putting together an FAQ on how to get to, and behave
on, #evolt - it could go there.
