Hmm, that is a little like saying, "If you do that I'll tell your mommy 
and you will be in big twobble"  It's uncalled for childishness.  I have 
no problem with advertising, but what really ticks me off is when someone 
has the balls to advertise on a channel, and then k/b the person for 
advertising their own.  Here's the thing, if you don't like someone's 
mud, don't play on it.  It's a simple concept, make you're own and be 
content.  It is true though that #mud is more of a channel for eshores, 
though not because they took it over, but because thats all the people 
who are there.  Agreed, there could be more appropriate names such as 
#eshores, or the sort.  My only problem is having mirc clones setting in 
the channel all day, if it is going to be a free channel, let it that way.
