That explains a lot...
(And just for the record, I am using Free Pascal since at least 1997, 
when it was still "just" a 386 code producing clone of Turbo Pascal and 
still named FPK (Florian's Pascal Kompiler, IIRC the first copyright 
statements back in those days)


I don't care personally for any IRC channel (nor Discord, Slack, or 
anything along those lines), but it seems that you have taken a very 
dictatorial and oppressive view and thus actions on the IRC channel, 
which seem to be rather detrimental and contrary to your stated 
intention of "promoting FPC"...

For example, a lot of people might just be "lurking", simply because 
they are new to (Free)Pascal, as well as not being able to speak and 
properly write in English, because it is not their native language. You 
are excluding and downright chastise those people for being newbies. Not 
very inclusive and inviting...

Beside that people might not be able to tell you what they are working 
on, as there simply might not be a specific project, as they just might 
wanna work. But this is for you apparently just another reason to slap 
them in the face and ban them.

Bottom line is that it is YOU who is "orchestrating drama" and you don't 
seem to grasp that your actions are in effect malicious to anyone in the 
project, be it developers or users.
