What good is simulating real-time chat with email?

If you prefer not to use IRC most of the time, fine.
Refusing to use IRC when it is clearly the superior tool, that's just dumb. So
then I guess you are arguing email is better for this, right?

What's so bad about the real-time nature of IRC anyways? That's just like having
a genuine face-to-face conversation. Are those bad too? To be avoided at all
costs? What problem are we solving here again?
