seems to me that you are just genrally against encryption and same time keep calling fish a cheap solution allthough it for a very long time was the best solution and it cant be that cheap since mircryption adopted some of it

also u say people may get confused
do you really feel mirc is so straight forward
adding fish as an option cant confuse anyone those who dont need it doesnt look for it

as i see it the more encryption options the better and i really want to see secure transfers in irc too (thats not just mirc though its also irc servers)
