    MRC's protocol is incredibly poor quality. i would recommend using an IRC door like MannIRC or the one in Synchronet and pointing it at irc.synchro.net

    iirc MRC sends all the private messages to absolutely everyone and the client decides to show them or not. so a custom client could just watch everything everyone says.

    iirc MRC sends all the private messages to absolutely everyone and the clien decides to show them or not. so a custom client could just watch everything everyone says.

    That is no longer the case, as far as I know. There have been some significant updates and changes to MRC.

    To answer the original question. MRC is for BBS-to-BBS chat, specifically. There is a bridge to an IRC server, but that's the extent of its connection to it. IRC is for chatting over the internet in general, with different IRC servers connected together (or not) making different IRC networks. Sort of a de-centralized kind of thing. With MRC, it may seem decentralized with the BBSes as "servers", but they have to connect to a main server and you can't make different "networks" of BBSes.

    FWIW, the gettogethers on MRC are a lot of fun - we've done movie
    viewings, sat around, chatted with 20+ people and caught up with other
    BBSers.

    The tech may be sus, but the application is rewarding.
