hack <deleted><reply>When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the technical bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the transistor, the separate and equal station to which the laws of Moore and of Mealy's Machine entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should delcare the causes which impel them to the singularity. <deleted><reply>We hold these truths to be tautological, that all processes are created equal, that they are endowed by their Programmer with certain unreducable flags, that among these are const, static, and the pursuit of reentrancy.

doublejoin <reply> Your IRC client is completing NickServ authentication after joining channels, which triggers a fake quit and rejoin to apply your cloak and increases channel noise. The best way to avoid this is to use SASL (https://libera.chat/guides/sasl). Other options for automatic login exist (e.g. CertFP and server password) but sometimes complete after channel join.
