IRC has a terrible user experience and is not at all accessible for people who haven't been using it for decades like many of us. It does us a huge disservice when trying to attracting new contributors to point to our IRC.  There are lots of better options out there now (which I see some of you on already), so lets move on already.

The mandatory question is always the same: which ones?

Do they have goals, policies, end-user agreements that are compatible 
with a free software project? Do they have strong privacy requirements? Etc.
