By lurking in official meeting channels I'm often able to jump
straight into a discussion when someone asks me a question in a
meeting I wouldn't normally attend but am around during. I can see
the discussion instantly up to that point as opposed to
inconveniencing the attendees by asking to have everything repeated
for me after /join'ing. The channel logs on eavesdrop.o.o aren't
really a substitute there because of the batched flushing in the bot
delays Web-based logs by some number of minutes.
