[IRCServices Coding] Mass memos

I'd have to agree that this is a much better idea than a mass memo, soley for the fact that many of our users come once, dissappear for a few weeks, then come back.. To come back to a box full of memos which no longer regard them could be a problem, and would cause complaints. To have logonnews somewhere where all the users can see it, and where it wont prompty be hidden by IRCd spam would be a much better alternative.

If you really wanted mass memo, it shouldnt really be too hard to make a simple module that did it...
