There are hardly any real reasons you need for this. This may descend
on you completely randomly, unpredictably and with the fact in mind
that it's the ops that have the banhammer in their hands. It's not
worth negociating IRC here, though, that's why both my quoting and
authoring of email content ends here which might come as a surprise.
As somebody who has been banned on IRC in the past, I'll have to tell
you one thing though: please stop negociating it over another channel,
because it will be used against you on irc.

Basically, please send me a selection of irc channels you frequent
off-list on how we can maintain (in this case revive) our friendship.

If you can, let's get some of the more liberally inclined people on
board so we can get our own channel off the ground, preferably on a
different network.
