The channel was never registered and no one (but Cliff) ever had ops
(but for a few short minutes).  This was never too much of a problem
because channel mode t was unset :D.  Then freenode switched IRCd's...
apparently everyone at some point left #nginx and the channel was
recreated - with the default server modes of +nt.

At any rate this happened to several groups today, and was temporarily
fixed thanks to operserv, but the end-solution for everyone is to get
their channels registered, which at this point must be done
"officially" since we cant make everyone part (in our case of 100+
people consistently).

Finally, I'm of the understanding that Cliff, as the original channel
creator (in the non-services sense), has put through a request for
official creation and at most we're now just waiting for freenode
staff to email Igor (if they will even need to do that) for a "do you
know this Cliff guy" sort of thing.

So, hopefully, very soon, there'll be a message in this thread saying
it's all done sorry for the alarums thanks to everyone :D.
