identify <reply> You can identify to NickServ automatically when connecting to Libera. See https://libera.chat/guides/sasl for more information. When identifying manually, do NOT send the command from a channel tab, as a typo will give away your password. If that happens, identify and then type «/msg NickServ set password <newpass>» in the server tab as soon as possible. Added by LjL

hotornot <reply> We tend to strongly discourage hot-or-not style discussions about women, as they're known to discourage female geeks from participating in communities.

highno <reply> A higher version number does not mean that it's better. Especially with packages such as the linux kernel. The packages in the Ubuntu repositories are stable and will work fine.
