Straight Dope related chat rooms?

I know there are several Straight Dope related member sites (member as in part of a group - you dirty birdy)

Are there any active Straight Dope related chat rooms?

There is an IRC channel that can be found on the Undernet servers at #straightdope. To connect you need to either download an IRC client, and then join the undernet server and type /join #straightdope or you can go to, choose “Webchat” and join from there.

I will never think of dirty birdy as any other phrase than the one - Anne, is it? - uses in Misery.

“Dirty Birdie! You dirty birdie!”

Somewhat related to the OP, I have Yahoo messenger on nearly constantly during the day…I’d love to hear from some fellow dopers from time to time!

Feel free to send me a message! :slight_smile:

Luckily, I’ve yet to see any goats in the IRC channel. So there are benefits!

Tried to log on here. Nothing. Anything else?

Anyone wanna start one?
