I can try to answer specific questions posted here in email about using IRC. 

The first suggestions I'd have for everyone is to 1) make sure you have picked a unique nickname (also known as a 'nick') and 2) registered it using an email address and a password with the freenode network. Then, every time you connect, be sure to 3) identify your nick using that password.


It used to be that one could get started using IRC without registering, which made it *much* easier to learn to use, but attacks have necessitated registration to gain full use.
