##li has been in existence for the past 4 years - and is the *only*
pan India foss body. It is perfectly hacker friendly and is slowly
growing. I do not like people who create FUD about the channel and
plaster mailing lists with announcements like this. Sure, go ahead
and create your own channel - but do it without spreading FUD. So it
is cool that so-called hackers leave.
