Good idea. I've set up my IRC client to listen for "fluid-everyone." Here's how I did it in Colloquy:

1. Colloquy > Preferences
2. Choose Alerts
3. In the "Highlight words" text field, I added the fluid-everyone keyword

Please let me know if there is. Right now, most of us listen for keywords, usually our nick. Would people mind listening for another keyword (e.g. fluid-everyone) to be used to ping everyone? The one draw back is that we won't get the type assistance and will have to remember it.
