As owner of the IRC channel (chatroom) affiliated to CEMB, I hereby announce its closure, effective immediately.
As some of the members there will have noted, I have not been particularly active of late. The administrators of the CEMB forum have never been particularly interested in running a chatroom and I came to the conclusion some time ago that it does not represent a good return on the investment of administrative time and energies required to manage it. Messaging this closure notification was on my todo list before the latest complaints were made, in case any of the mentally impaired see fit to point fingers. This decision was put forward by me and agreed by the CEMB forum administrators a little while ago.
I hope the members who have used the chan in the past have found it useful. Thank you to Kod, toor, serrated_colon and others who've helped manage it in the past.
ps. Whilst anyone is free to set up ex-Muslim chat rooms, please do not associate any such ventures with CEMB. Explicit permission is required for associated projects bearing the CEMB name.
