*** Welcome to CGI:IRC

- *** Couldn't look up your hostname

- *** Hostname is set to *** Banned Temporary K-line 1440 min. - Blacklisted Proxy found. Visit for info. (2008/5/3 04.59)

*** Closing Link (*** Banned )

*** Disconnected from IRC (click to reconnect)

This is all fine and dandy, and I understand what it says. I visited the website, and visited the link it said I was listed under. I followed the instructions, and infact there WAS a Trojan that it discovered, which i promptly removed the traces of, and rescanned a couple of times using its program, and opted to be off the list. It says that I Am off the list, but I have yet to be unbanned.

The forum <> an EFnet server.

If you wanted the ban lifted before 1440 minutes (one day), you should've contacted the admins of the server.

there is no automatic notification to the irc servers of removal of an IP address from the blacklist, therefor there is no automatic removal of the ban.

1440 minutes is a 24 hour ban, if you can't wait that long, try another server, or contact the admins of the server directly.
