Banned by Accident... (AUTO-CHAN)

Postby oops_ur_dead » Wed Jan 21, 2009 10:01 pm

I am banned from the whole EFnet server, for something I didnt do. I was previously banned from a certain channel, so I went on other familiar channels. A couple of days ago, I was on my usual channels, when somebody told me (in private) to stop spamming on that channel I was banned from. Confused, I went back to my EFnet channel, but was surprised to learn I was banned. The next day, the person told me that "I" had gone on the channel and started spamming with bots. They thought it was me because the spam message was "oops-sama (my EFnet name) is the best". Apparently, even though the IP was different, they reported me and I was banned. I have no involvement with the spammer and dont know why anybody would do something. All I want is to be unbanned.

Well, first, check to make sure that your client hasn't been compromised in some way that is actually causing it to spam without your knowledge. If you have been g:lined (network-wide ban), the bans will expire on their own, usually in 24 hours.

I have no idea what AUTO-CHAN is. You might try a different server other than irc.prison.net.

On prison, it's usually one of two things: 1) attempting to join a juped/resv'd channel; or 2) bad auto kline notice but still a result of failure to follow server policies.
