What feature request do you feel is in "overwhelming demand"?
I can understand your frustration having to make the same points over and over. I've already explained that some 'other' changes to mIRC would allow greater flexibility here, but that I don't think expanding to 99 colours will suffice (How is that zealous?). You've explained why you think it's a bad idea, and that you think 99 colours will be ample. See where I'm going here?
I feel like this has become an argument for arguments-sake (just like the last thread), so I'll contribute nothing further. I'd completely understand if you feel the need to reply to this though.
