There are two types of channels allowed by this protocol.  One is a
distributed channel, which is known to all the servers that are
connected to the network. These channels are marked by the first
character being a '#'.  The other type of channel is limited to one

it.  These channels are distinguished by a leading '&' character.

Notes:

There is a missing chunk of text between "being a" and "only clients".
