After helping Yashi to join the IRC channel, I jotted down
some notes on how to join the channel here:

Given the amount of disturbing spam we are receiving we are thinking to
close the channel to registered users only.
We are in contact with the OFTC polizei, so we may not do that if we
getsee a reduction in spam, however we think is a good idea to keep
nicks registered nonetheless.
We'll make a decision in about one week, for now, here are some useful
instructions to register your nicks.
If you use Matrix:
1. From Matrix, /msg NickServ register [password] [email]
2. Go to https://services.oftc.net/ and login with [nick] as
username, and the password you used in step 1, then go to Account ->
Verify and complete the captcha
3. Back on Matrix, /msg NickServ checkverify
4. /msg NickServ link [nick] [password]
If you use xchat or hexchat:
/msg NickServ register [password] [email]
/msg NickServ IDENTIFY [password]
This should make you a registered user and able to use the channel.
As said, we won't be making it +R just yet, but it's recommended you
keep the nicks registered.
