Couple things:
1) I like that xkcd comic
2) I have the same initial reaction as Kevin here.  Maybe I should
look at the new ToC enforced, but as far as the myopic view of an end
user, I feel like Slack does meet my needs well, and appreciate the
number of other communities which also use the same (ie, ease of use and
familiarity for people).

The driver behind having an alternative to IRC was 1) some find IRC intimidating 2) some are more likely to get involved in our community if there’s a communication GUI that they’re familiar with.
