There need to be more ops in the irc channel #rubyonrails. These ops need to be community personell who have a large-range of knowledge and can help out the new people, as well as keeping the egos in check. I'm tired of encountering people on the channel who are abusive and there needs to be someone there *at all times* to moderate. Currently there are only about 3-4 *active* ops who are generally busy with their lives.
I know this is not the "right place" to post this kind of thing, but my other avenues have turned into dead ends.
