Using the word "moral" in relation to something as trivial as IRC is
degrading.  The term "opinion" is far better suited.

There will always be those people in the IRC scene that can not fathom the
childish concepts of empowering server operators with god-like-powers; and
there will always be a few in the aforementioned group that enjoy stating
their opinion.  :)

I love how people post for help and get other peoples personal morals 
back in return.  :P
