14:21 MonkeyKing jobs.perl.org don't have enough information
14:24 Juerd_ Then you are out of luck.
14:25 Juerd_ Spamming IRC won't work. It'll only make matters worse for you.

14:44 masak Juerd_: /say is really almost a no-op, sending the text to the room
14:50 ayrnieu /say doesn't exist in IRC, but IRC clients offer it to, e.g., send messages to a channel that begin with '/', which most clients otherwise treat specially.
