I can understand your point of view. I also think it isn't really an
option to discuss serious matters with _many_ people. I do think it is
useful for something you could call meetings of a smaller group talking
about certain issues. As long as you can involve _all_ the people needed
(and this doesn't happen too often - I can understand) IRC is a very
useful way of communicating.

I would suggest to have some times (Like ;) set where the
chance is higher to meet people of the same interest over there (e.g.
8pm GMT every Monday, Thursday, Saturday ...). 

A statement of this kind would be probably more useful than a general
channel on IRC where you (as a non-IRC-er) wouldn't (want to?)

BTW. written record: this problemd can be dealed with (i.e. a bot
