That channel does exist but is not NANOG-related. Some #nanog folks who
do want to finally chat on-topic hang out there. Quote from one of them:
"dude, this is prolly the most on topic IRC channel I was ever in". :-)

Fortunately, even with currently almost 200 folks in it, there is enough
self discipline to stay mostly on topic.

Who cares about organizations when it comes to exchange a few words
between operators?
