I noticed now that only users registered with NickServ where allowed to
speak on the IRC channel. This might also have prevented new users
connected via Matrix to speak, unless you also registered with NickServ.
In case you could join the channel but were unable to send messages,
please try again now.

We had enabled this due to a spam wave a few months ago. I hope we can
relax this limitation now without getting the spam bots again. Sorry, I
had not thought of disabling this before.
