The argument is that the overwhelming majority of IRC users have no idea the
/time command exists, and even fewer are aware that they can specify a
server name after the /time command.  How would these people find out the
Services time zone?  Why does it all have to be so complicated??

Erm, what's the argument here?  Services stipulates its timezone in its
timestamps.  As do all the other servers on the network.

Atleast mine do...
