January 2003 (or earlier) Okay, the #Gay_Halifax IrcChannel is a piece of shit, but here's the current situation:

#gay_halifax is a "benevolent dictatorship" of sorts, run by boytoy^ (BoyToy?) and shilo/uprise/enforcer/whatever his name is this week. You get to stick around in the channel if you obey the following rules, and understand the accompanying administrative decisions:

#gayHalifax, on the other hand, is free and open and almost anyone who is responsible can have ops. Responsibility is determined according to how closely they follow this channel's rules.

Obviously its up to the public to decide which is better. Being good canadians they'll take it up the ass, both figuratively and literally.

You can't please everyone. See GayCommunity.

Oh, and you might want to take a look over on NastyPeople? to see if there's any new news on 'em.
