IRC and the like.

Have you ever noticed that chat rooms, IRC, and other similar chat technologies, are affected by this "plague" of stupidity?

Every time I have ever joined an IRC channel or chat room, I've been faced with this type of discussion:

1337_d00d: i bet u that my frind can beat ur ass j0e_b0b: nah dude... his penis isn't large enough j0e_b0b: 3=D *** j0e_b0b laughs Time passes... 3m0ti0n@1chix0r: **sob** nobody likes me 1337_d00d: itz bcuz ur a hor j0e_b0b: lolololol 1337_d00d: ur going 2 haf 2 run bcuz im gunna kill u 3m0ti0n@1chix0r: OMFG!!! I"M SO CALLING THE POLICE ON U!!!

This gets old in a hurry. So what have I done about it? I've quit visiting IRC channels other than those that I have created, which are most usually dead or have intelligent discussion in them. There is the occasional time that an imbicle joins the channel and tries to look "big" like the above idiots, but they are greeted with a prompt /kick.
