Who miss it? Heck, who remembers using it at all? Ah the memories, or there lack of. I can't even remember which update removed it.
Note: This isn't a suggestion that it should come back. The forum's in need of a couple of belated maintainances well before something that frivolous. Then again, I'm not really against it coming back in the future (in its official capacity, not just some random member hosting a channel on some backwater IRC server somewhere).
