Blocking /part messages

Postby MasterXC2007 » Thu Feb 18, 2010 2:13 am

For the love of god, please do something about this. For the past couple weeks I've seen literally dozens of part messages advertising their channels and crap, and it's getting extremely annoying. It's even more so when it's impossible to stop because the person is gone, and it's always different people each time anyway.

My suggestion: Either turn off part messages entirely or create a mode that prevents /part messages from showing, or at least something to stop the annoying and rampant advertising tactics.

You can't just "not show part messages" on the server end, a client wouldn't know that a person has left. The most you could do is censor part messages.

Okay, I'll rephrase it: Force clients to use "static" part messages. On some networks, the actual message (not the PART part, but the message after) is striped. This is what I was talking about...

Hi

I've been monitoring the part messages on the network for an hour and only one contained a channel name. While it may be coincidental, it looks like this isn't such a huge problem.
I do understand that this may be annoying, so I would suggest you report the channels that were advertised so we can look into those?
Obviously they don't tend to do it in most of the channels opers are in.

Kind regards

Granted this is over the course of a couple days, but still, even once a day gets annoying after a while. This is in #runebnc.

What is even the point of allowing quit and part messages to be visible? In UnrealIRCd you can set a default part and quit message (like most ircds do).
