Our opinions are different, each person has its own preferences, which is understandable. Let's try to look at this discussion from an objective point of view. Before starting any project, it's a good idea to run a fesability study to understand what is the ratio between the work involved in it and its final usefulness. Has anyone conducted a thorough research on several IRC networks, to see how many people would be interested in using this feature and how many do not find it necessary? I doubt Khaled will be willing to dedicate a few weeks to this enhancement when only .5% of mIRC users will keep it activated. If there are no studies to indicate that such a feature is likely to be used by a lot of people, then it's pointless to get it started.
