"It's not a hostile takeover" says the person taking things over hostilely.

I am glad they are clearing the air of any confusion. Making it against policy to leave makes the choice easy for a lot of people that was on the fence.

Can confirm - I have seen this personally in a bunch of channels I'm in. I'm now in the final stages of closing down everything for my eventual /quit from Freenode. Onwards to @liberachat

Not new, but there has been a massive leave. Still hard to judge which side to believe. Not much real evidence and story is not compatible, looks like someone must lie their ass off.
