OT: Subsurface IRC-channel swamped by ads

There's not much activity on the IRC channel but would it be possible to 
reconsider the policy of joining.

The issue is that for the last couple of days the channel has been hosed 
with 'IRC ad service' spam. This means that I get a false notification 
of activity, and, because of the volume of spam, it is quite hard to 
find whether anything about Subsurface has actually been discussed.

One way to combat this is to use registration (+r mode). Another one 
could be to drop the channel altogether.
