On phpBB Weekly #021, when I mentioned the MOD Authors Convention happening in #phpbbmod, I pronounced it "pound phpbbmod", because in the United States, the # key on a telephone is named "pound." A few hours later in IRC, a number of team members got on my case because they said it was supposed to be "hash phpbbmod", and that supposedly everyone calls it that. To be honest, IRC is usually something that people type about, and if they're every talking about it, they refer to it as though someone already knows about IRC and don't have to get too detailed about the channel.
Anyway, I made fun of their insistence on proper naming on the next phpBB Weekly episode, and we've cross-referenced it a few times as a running joke whenever the team members offer a correction to something that I say that is relatively insignificant to the point I'm making. Very recently, in an announcement on the phpBB Weekly blog, I typed "forum software" and had some team members get on me for not calling it "board software."
Anyway, I'd like to ask you to share your opinion. What should #phpbbmod be called, or does any of this really matter?
