Avoid libera.chat at all cost! New Freenode is way better!

As you may know Freenode has been acquired by Andrew Lee in 2017[1] who now made changes to the network that made majority of the Freenode staffers to leave and create libera.chat network instead[2].

This is a very good thing!!!

Majority of those staffers are terrible people[4] that make Free Software community a painful experience for everyone[3][4] through a ways of constant harassment[4], homophobia and transphobia[5].

I don’t understand if this is sarcastic or not.

Anyway ban all the moderators in the channels, changing their names and put them back is not so good.
