💢 docs: Add IRC channel + quotes issue to FAQ (closes #255)

This commit addresses the pain point that @Tjzabel hit this past week
when the IRC channel is not escaped by quotes in the `env` file. Since
he is probably not the first or last person this will happen to, this
documents it in our FAQ.

💢 emoji because this was really frustrating. 😂

Closes #255.

Messages do not appear in the IRC channel. Why?

There are a lot of things that *could* be the cause.
However, make sure the **IRC channel is surrounded by quotes in the `.env` file**:


If there are no quotes, the value is interpreted as a comment, or the same thing as if it were an empty string.
