This issue has been resolved.
First of all, let me express my graditude to twokoolfourskewl with whom I had a pretty nice chat. First part has been a little ugly and we agreed that we disagree on the how legit BitShares, I3 and the team are. After figuring this out we moved over and had a nice chat about the channel.
TwoKoolFourSkewl> I'm not unreasonable. I'll unban you and transfer ops.
TwoKoolFourSkewl> I originally registered the channel because I started mining PTS.
TwoKoolFourSkewl> I'll let you know when I "drop" the channel so you can claim it
TwoKoolFourSkewl> Give me a couple minutes
TwoKoolFourSkewl> yeah sure, give me a minute or two and it'll be yours
xeroc> the bitshares community in general is pretty friendly oriented when it comes to NXT ..
xeroc> we even figured out that DPOS is almost similar to Transparent forging ..
xeroc> and Jinn is also discussed on the forums ..
xeroc> the only altcoin even Bytemaster bashes on is nuBits
TwoKoolFourSkewl> Issue this command '/msg ChanServ SET #bitshares FOUNDER xeroc'
xeroc> Transfer complete: xeroc has been set as founder for #bitshares.
xeroc> thank you very much ..
That's (BTW) why I always try to tell people that we do NOT have enemys and are NOT in war with other crypto (except maybe nuBits
Turns out most people are reasonable and commit their time to their favorit project.
Anyway, thanks again to twokoolfourskewl for handing over the channel.
I will read into the freenode tutorial and figure out how to really manage a channel
