Something to remember about IRC

A common mistake for newcomers on IRC is to ask if they can ask a question. But then it’s too late, they already did! Short explanation by aeruder_ on #git this evening:

<aeruder_>
on irc never ask to ask, consider it a non-realtime means of conversation (you wouldn’t email someone and ask them ‘hey can I ask you a question?’ would you?)
