Well, this isn't Podcasting for Cats, but it might be Podcasting for Five-Year-Olds. Right at this moment, I am caught between giggling and feeling so bad for IP Relay operators. Abusing these poor saintly people isn't a new hack, but apparently making them call OpenPodcast.org and record podcast entries is.
In the last 20 minutes, I've heard goofy tongue twisters (some from smart fellas), many digits of PI, hot sex scenes in /usr/bin, and crappy song lyrics.
At least one person isn't very happy about it at all. And, well, I have to agree after listening through a string of a dozen of these as they played in the background. The calls were amusing, and I hope these messages maybe made an operator's day interesting at least, but umm... can you guys move on now?
Update 2004-01-12: How meta--a plea to stop, as an IP Relay message.
