Gotta love democracy :)

Let me vote again.

At 04:45 AM 12/29/2001, Martin typed these words:

A BIG +1 to this. I encourage people to start their own chatrooms. I've 
done this a few times when I wanted to brainstorm stuff with geographically 
distant colleagues.

Sounds like a good idea. +1

This will a) get rid of the bots from the main room and b) let people try 
out their programming skills in a non-hazardous manner :)
