So what about the authentic Bitcoin client? I always understood it used IRC to find nodes, does it use Freenode or another service? How does it avoid getting us banned from servers?
Please use another peer discovery method, or your own server, or a different irc network, or AT LEAST, communicate with freenode operators first so they don't spend their valuable time responding to what looks to them like a botnet using their network.
Seems some people do the right thing and ask permission of freenode or at least "communicate with freenode operators", some say "oh they are doing it , we can too" but dont ask permission? Shows little forethought or respect from altchain devs...
just another thing to make these alt chains look scammy
