[fpc-pascal] IRC channel for FreePascal support ?

I suggest to subscribe to the Lazarus/ Fpc forum. It’s very easy.
You don’t have to ask questions if you don’t want, and you can still learn a lot from all questions and answers posted.
And no one is horassing anyone…

I bet this Joanna character is an active member of her Homeowners

I verified that there is an operator named Joanna on #fpc on

The power-hungry kind of behavior exhibited by Joanna is bad for the
channel and therefore bad for the project. In another post Jacob
mentioned that Joanna had kicked him from several other channels on
which he had done nothing. This is inexcusable. I assume now that I've
written this I'll meet the same fate. I'm rethinking my use of FPC and
Lazarus. What good is software if you can't get support?
