Oy. Vocal coin pumpcoiners. Please tell your people and your supporters NOT to spam IRC channels with URL-match-evading links, regular and repetitive spam links, and unregistered nicknames.

I made this request in your "announce" thread and was instantly deleted. So, I assume you are either encouraging it, are the ones doing it, don't care that you're spamming another community with spam, or otherwise are being negligent dicks. So, I'll make a thread here about it.

"Matthew Adair" or Skele or whoever it is moderating the Vocal thread for Vocal "coin" decided to summarily delete my perfectly legitimate request in his official announce thread, regardless of the fact that a pumper spammed the IRC #bitcoin* channels on Freenode with links to his "coin". I initially thought it was just Vocal being reactionary dicks, but upon reading a chunk of the announce thread, realised that while the claims of transparency would normally have been the reason to keep the complaint and issue a statement requesting supporters be respectful of other communities, the fact that my request was deleted instead suggests they aren't interested in transparency nor respect at all.

The fact that there's some kind of ID posted has obviously not prevented the spamming of other communities.

Way to make a stance on the matter guys... as though being a pointless altcoin wasn't enough of a scam indicator.

* FWIW, I am an op on #bitcoin, one of Freenode's largest channels and have always wanted to be able to complain back at rando spammers who I've just kickbanned. I'm glad there was a bitcointalk.org thread, because I can finally post a complaint right beside the ultimate source of the spam. Hooray.
