I haven't been on DAL for a while, so I had no idea. If thats the case, then I'm glad they're doing something. The filesharers made it kind of pointless to get on there.. I'd try to start just a normal channel or something and someone would wander in and type '!list' or something.
Worse than that, the same is starting to happen on smaller networks like EsperNet. People will wander into my channel there, or the network channel #Esper, and request a list or ask where they can get music or something, like you said. Its annoying.
Also, you're right about removing filesharing networks. That kind of didn't occur to me when I said it before.
