Hello Patrick,

I don't know, who runs that service, but by using SSL, certificate verification and fingerprinting and optional OTR on top of that, there's nothing wrong with that one. Better having a stable unknown channel, than blocked official ones.

That hidden service works well with my IRC-bouncer, which I use with "usewithtor" (torsocks wrapper). It seems to be quite robust to me.

Well, your initial request was to have at least a temporary alternative.
