#bunsenlabs@freenode now only for registered nicks

In response to repeated flooding of ours and other IRC channels on Freenode, I've set the #bunsenlabs channel to be only accessible for registered IRC users, which means you need to identify against freenode's nickserv before joining. Apologies for the inconvenience, but that's better than having to read through several screens of spam.

I'll probably remove the +r flag next week or so.

Sorry to hear you have to do that but IRC has become a chaotic place with the spammers, trolls and troublemakers.
Have you checked out OFTC?

OFTC is just another IRC network though?

Re: #bunsenlabs@freenode now only for registered nicks

i have recently (a few months at least, this years basically) noticed more and more often that channels require registering a nick.

since i use IRC only punctually, i cannot tell for sure if this is a recent development...
