This would be very useful to me if I want to read up on when I was away from the channel but don't want to have that beeping noise going on everytime there is a new post :P Also it would keep organization. Suppose you want to part a channel but want to keep it in your channel line-up. The only way I can do that is to spam hop about 2 or 3 times so the server wont let me join but mIRC still keeps it open. This would be a great feature to add so I dont have to spam hop every time I need to part a channel but keep the order for one reason or another.
