It's always the minority fucking it for everyone else. The FreeBSD view[1] also
keeps them away from IRC problems. I personally think the FreeBSD view is fair
and shows a true state of IRC these days.

However, you must except people are not always going to head straight for
the handbook (you mentioned we ask a few simple things). It seems most problems
in IRC arise from someone asking a simple question, and everyone thinking
they're cool to jump on the bang wagon and riducule.
