The IRC Web #bitcoin channel on freenode serves as the de-facto "front door" for newcomers on IRC. Therefore, we strive to maintain a professional, friendly, and helpful atmosphere on the channel at all times. To this effect, the following behaviors are expressly prohibited:

  • Insults, flamewars, trolling;
  • Discussion of unlawful activity, pursuant to freenode's guidelines;
  • Generally, anything that would make a newcomer feel unwelcome or would reflect badly on the bitcoin community is to be avoided.

Private chat and alternative channels are always available, make good use of them.
