Ignore *ALL* the noise with IRSSI

If you're joining channels with IRSSI and keep getting spammed with all the IRC activity, just run the following in the prompt (for this example, I am in the #haskell channel):

/IGNORE #haskell JOINS PARTS QUITS TOPICS MODES

Don't forget to save your configuration (located at ~/.irssi/config) with

/save

You won't see any IRC activity now and can focus on the important stuff!
For more advanced IGNORE tips, check Joost's blog about it[1]

I find Nick changes annoying too, adding NICK fixes that as well. Great tip!
