      Description

      Because of the recent spam attacks, Daniel Beck ended up setting the channel to +r to stop them.

      We should add a small blurb on https://jenkins.io/chat/ to provide a bit more hints to newcomers that may be trying to start using IRC because of Jenkins, but not knowing/understanding why they are rejected and what "registered nick" means.

          Not sure whether this'll be a permanent state, but we can always remove the documentation for it.

          I'm going to phrase it so that we aren't forced to remove it anyway. Like: "if you're rejected because blah, blablah".
