Recently there has been explosion in bug closures.  This has had the unfortunate side effect of making it difficult to have a conversation in #d IRC with the bot constantly announcing these changes.  I humbly request that those responsible slow down this behavior to a more tolerable level so we can talk uninterrupted in the #d IRC channel.  I hate to call out someone by name but Walter in particular has been completely out of line with the volume of notifications he's been generating recently.

I understand some people like bug closures and who am I to judge but there is a limit to what some of us can tolerate and it has been surpassed.

I'm sorry it had to come to this.

Regards,
Brad Anderson

I for one very much like the work that Walter is doing and do not want him to slow down. Cleaning out the accumulated crap can ONLY be a good thing. I'd say the IRC channel can deal. :-)

I live to make IRC users suffer. It's dessert after eating babies.

Adapt the bot or configure your client to ignore the bot. Plain simple.

Appeasement? I refuse to make the same mistakes Neville Chamberlain made.

You know who else configured their client to ignore bots?

Bin Laden.

You thought I was going to say Hitler, didn't you? Well that's silly, Hitler was long dead before the invention of ARPANET, let alone the IRC protocol. I don't know how I can take technical advice from someone so confused about the timeline of history.

This is a pretty awesome problem to be had.

Damn ... things are getting fixed ... we better put a stop to that sort of thing before it gets totally out of hand.

How appropriate, considering the title.
