kampfire: But those 4 points aren`t justified. The only possible issue here is if that USA HomeLand Security see's an anti-gov domain (hostname) then it might want to ban the domain (this is a long shot) As for the rest, looking dumb is when a user joins #not-a-warez-chan and does !list It may be a...

I may have missed something but I know people that use a custom vhost not to look "cool", but to make a statement, possibly a political statement. In my opinion that shows a bit of class and respect to others within the same chat channel, it could be a silent protest, I do however see no use for wh...

osek, a spoof's never stopped you before, why dont you just packet the server like you usually do when you cant get the kids ip First of all, I'm retired, I do not packet anymore and you know it.

I know they have been going on for many years, but they kind of began to die down when IPv6 came onto the scene and threw a wrench in the mix. When IPv6 came along with IPv6 DNSing, users no longer had to worry about being packeted (as it reduced the chance) until people figured out how to packet o...

DNS Pollution/Cache Tricks

I would really like to know what EFNet's position on the use of DNS servers designed to trick IRC Servers into allowing a non-qualified hostname to connect is. I.e. jonny@poopie.net connects to irc.mzima.net and has IP address 1.2.3.4 user /whois's jonny@poopie.net because jonny packets user and use...
