bans, bans and more bans

Postby tomse » Mon May 09, 2011 5:14 pm

Hi there..

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels banned from efnet (though some servers work)

I've recently noticed that I've been banned from alot of servers, I only took notice recently due to that I usually start my client, and fetch a cup of coffee, sometimes that can take a long time, but
as I said "recently" discovered quite alot of bans on multiple servers.

some say:

[09:20] [465] tomse You are banned from this server: (e1/80) drones
[09:20] [error] Closing Link: tomse[<myhostname-which-has-been-removed-here>] (Banned: (e1/80) drones)

[18:49] [Notice] -irc.Prison.NET- *** Banned AUTO-USER (2011/4/20 00.03)
[18:49] [error] Closing Link: <myhostname-which-has-been-removed-here> (*** Banned )
(but I DO want to go to prison :lol: - oh I'm sorry you can't go to prison, you are not welcome here :twisted: sorry couldn't help myself here )

[18:50] [Notice] -- *** Processing connection to
[18:50] [error] Closing Link: <myhostname-which-has-been-removed-here> (You are not authorised to use this server)

ok, the last one might be valid :-)

I read as a response to one of the other posts that I shouldn't use, but hey, I haven't had any problems until recently
what has changed ?

cheers :-)

automatic bans for "drones" usually mean your connection info matches that of a known drone pattern. try changing your ident or gecos ("real name").

Everyone else must have an X.509 certificate.
