You are missing the point.

Linux Australia grew out of the IRC channel, not the other way around.  
The IRC channel has for at least 4 years or so been on OFTC, lilo DID 
solicit money repeatedly via global message, on freenode (or feenode as 
it was referred to) - I was there. Theres no FUD, no hacking groups it 

The linuxaus IRC channel has always been the one that is on OFTC - some 
other folk populated a channel on freenode, and declared it to be the 
official channel of Linux Australia, it never was.
