Pretty much everyone in #nycbug had already moved over, but I was
planning on staying on Freenode for a while for some other channels that
had not.

But the vulgar and extremely unethical actions of the current Freenode
administrators as described above forced my hand, so I have abandoned
all the Freenode channels I was on as of today, and I encourage you all
to do the same.
