    Matrix beats them. Matrix even have irc bridges. So using matrix I can access all of freenode, including #dragonbox-pyra.

    And what about people who are smart enough to use it but still use WhatsApp or other messengers instead of IRC? ;)

    How does IRC handle intermittent connectivity? Like if you are going in and out of service area?

    MOSH handles that well. SSH to a shell server, set up IRC client in screen/tmux, mosh in.

    `weechat` IRC client has decent `relay protocol` which can be used by the Androidâ„¢ app for example

    Oh wow, most people I've ever met either uses Discord or Facebook Messenger now. I tried IRC back in the mid 2000s but that's about it.
    Even around that time, everyone I knew used MSN/Windows Live Messenger or Skype.

    Personally, IRC is a lot more about reaching people you don't know than those you do. Though I do use it to communicate with groups of friends as well.

    Lately IM has been catching up to this, but them all being incompatible walled gardens means you can't build anything that survives the company failing (AIM is IIRC being shut down) or being bought and merged into some other network (like skype). Matrix is a good try for an alternative, as is XMPP. Any true successor to IRC will need to be federated between independent servers, completely open and as close to the simplicity of the protocol as any new features allow.

    Discord, Slack, Flowdock, Skype, Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram (AFAIK) and any other closed server single-provider walled gardens can never replace IRC for all use cases.

    I know this is just a joke, but you gotta hear me out. It's just convenient for most people.
    If I somehow managed to get my mates to switch to IRC, I'd be the guy having to host a private server in my house and port forward OR pay some company online monthly to host one. The majority of my IRL mates wouldn't have a clue how to do that.
    Or you know we could just make an account on a pre-existing service like Discord or Messenger. Sure the service itself is closed but you can customize your server/group heavily anyway.

    The only people I would've met to know all that, are people from those computer courses. Which I wanted to punch in the face for being really unfunny

    Yes, just a joke, and no offense intended.

    It's all a matter of personal choice; I'm just uncomfortable that my personal information and communications are seen as purely a commodity. So i choose not to use them.

    Protip, don't use your real name or phone number:)
    In fact I think the only site I've used my real name is on PayPal or when I'm filling out billing information
