/Ignore (nick)

Postby zez700 » Thu Dec 09, 2010 1:03 am

I honestly think a /ignore (nick) command should be added into swiftirc/swiftkit. Silence doesn't work on swiftkit, I don't know why, but I would find it very useful if it did.

The silence command works fine on SwiftKit, however, you should remind that it's only made to block private messages and personal notices sent to you. This will not block any channel messages. Also, due to SwiftKit's limitations it will not notify you about the silence rule that was just added, but it will still work.

I'd also like to add to what Patje said:

Silence is only usable up to 10 times per session (unless it has changed).
Silence only works for notices and private messages.
SwiftKit doesn't output any confirmation, but you must be sure all PMs with the user are closed
mIRC has a built in /ignore which is far superior, you should consider switching.

Most spam is done with un-registered nicknames, you should look into using usermodes +R and +T (/helpop ?umodes)

I use both mIRC and Swiftkit, but I use Swiftkit more often because it's convenient. The thing is, if I ignored someone on mIRC, would it do the same as on Swiftkit? I suggest that it also blocks channel messages as well, it's not the unregistered users that are annoying. I understand that an op can mute people in a channel though. :P

mIRC's /ignore is client side, meaning that the server still routes the message to the client, but mIRC processing them against in internal ignore list.

the /silence command is server side, so the server doesn't send any message to the recipient if the sender is on the silence list.
