The notion that freeware coders pay more attention to security is a lod of bull too.

I neither stated, suggested, or implied that freeware IRCds have better security, I simply questioned your idea that because something is expensive it will be better. Also, the thread isn't about IRCds, it's about servers, connection/hardware/software and so on are all part of the server as a whole, and as such I'd say if you had $5000 or so to spend on a server there are better places it could be spent than the IRCd.

Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.
