It's a public channel, on an insecure server, plugged into clearnet.
Do you have any idea how many users, publicly accessible archives,
corporate bots, and NSA drones, have and even publish a copy of IRC... lots.
Permission has no relavant context there. Users believing public IRC is
somehow transient, private, unrecorded, etc... that's downright foolish.
If you want secrecy / deniability, etc, try using or developing something
else, good luck, it's no easy task.

Most GNU/Linux are hard to learn due to unnecessary abstraction layers,
thus time spent learning or gutting them first instead of learning unix.
Learn more unix and the answer to the behavior will become obvious.

Abject backdooring is different from selective funding to areas
that are not a threat to the funder. It's been hashed to death...
in the public archives, no permission needed.
