This, to me, implies that a connection to Freenode is occurring.
Is this true?
If so, why would this be happening before I actually click on an
IRC channel that's being served by Freenode?

And the msg from Freenode is no longer being displayed.
However, I'm still getting a message from Nickserv.
Again, isn't this something that's supposed to happen
