Every argument I'm getting thrown back at me is arguing against the latter, instead of what I actually said. If even one person doesn't attack because he can't take over the channel, and brief service interruption doesn't cut the mustard for him, then using Chanserv was a good tool, and that's the only claim I made. If you want to argue that the attacks won't decrease, fine; but everybody please stop telling me that they won't cease, because I KNOW THAT ALREADY.
