Just typo'ed a servername while reconnecting to an IRC channel, and accidentally put in libera dot net instead of the correct dot chat, and you wouldn't believe where I found myself: Back on Freenode. Who've apparently secured that domain, and are using it to try to trick people back on to their services.
@mhoye I suspect they're doing it as a troll in order to make their opponents look like fanatics, since tricking people back onto their services seems unlikely to have much impact besides making people angry.
@mhoye One of the libera admins owns freenode.chat, though I dunno if it was retaliation over this 😁
