Why am I not a millionaire by now?

If making really backwards, stupid, completely moronic decisions powers the modern business world including the Internet software industries why am I not a millionaire by now?

Years after IRC (Internet Relay Chat) jumped the shark, landed back in the water and was promptly chewed up and was then replaced by Instant Messaging. all of a sudden web browsers are coming with... IRC clients!

I left the world of IRC behind after 7 years because it had devolved to nothing more than a place for newly-Internet-capable countries in the middle east to collect horny men looking for hot American women, or men to give trojans and virii to.

That and the fact that most people on IRC were looking for sex talk, MP3s or movie files to download.

What in the world would I want to get on IRC again only to be DoS'd, probed for getting a virus or requests for lists of warez, Mp3s and whatever else was illegal at the time and available on IRC. Then there were the netsplits, bot and clone attack/floods, anti-social morons who did nothing but harass everyone, on top of people from foreign countries who had no idea what was going on and were THRILLED to be on the INTERNET!

Good riddance.

IRC is dead, long live IRC!
