My problem with IRC has been friendliness, or lack thereof. When I saw
the message that started this thread, I headed off to IRC, only to find
three Sonic groups: #sonic, #sonik, and #~SONiC~ if I recall. (There was
also a #sonicyouth group.) The people in Sonic were saying things so
bizarre that for all I know I'd stumbled upon a secret society meeting,
and when they figured out I didn't 'belong' they wouldn't talk to me.
The second group completely shut up when I entered it, so must have been
something semi-private.

I think the mailing list is a better system anyway. We have time to
compose our messages, but the list runs quickly enough that a dialogue
can take place. If you want to virutally meet, though, there's always
FurToonia (a MUCK); there's a small area there dedicated to Sonic, and
one of the people on our list actually plays him there. (:3

I like work. It's fascinating. I could watch it for hours.
