    Offtopic, but: .horse? Really?

      The author got that question on HN and answered as follows:

      The first page I wrote when I was making the site was this one (https://ircdocs.horse/specs/) – and the initial drafts were a fair bit screechier than what’s there now. I wanted people to know that everything on ircdocs is pretty much just my thoughts (as opposed to the more consensus-based approach of IRCv3), and figured the horse TLD would make people take it less seriously.

      Didn’t exactly work out, now that a fair number of devs are using it as a legit protocol reference. Still, gives the site some decent character and makes it memorable :P

          It’s just… weird! In a good way, but… yeah.
