I have never seen any such a channel for user support

people who are seeking help with mediawiki. If you really want to keep
the bots in channel, we should create #mediawiki-help for people who
are seeking that and don't want to be brought in channel where
everyone ignores them because their support question is lost in the
feeds. That isn't just unfriendly but it doesn't even make sense to
have such a channel. Indeed it's useful for devs, but in this case we
shouldn't use it as a support channel
Are you sure they are ignored due to the bots, and it's not just that
nobody was looking at the channel at that time?
Bots may be implicated, but let's not blame them gratuitously.
