K-lined for no reason?

Postby Jimley » Thu Jun 04, 2009 10:15 pm

Logging in...
-- *** Processing connection to irc.paraphysics.net
-- *** Looking up your hostname...
-- *** Checking Ident
-- *** No Ident response
-- *** Couldn't look up your hostname
-irc.paraphysics.net- *** Banned Temporary K-line 14400 min. - (r49/1112) Drones (2009/6/4 21.50)
Error : Closing Link: ipedited4privacy (*** Banned )
Disconnected from irc.efnet.org
I'm not sure why I was banned, 10 days is excessive for sure. Last night was the first time in months I have been on efnet. I simply got something off xbins, said thanks, typed /quit thanks, and that was it. Come back today, and I'm banned? Not a clue on what I did.

Your connection info matched a regular expression that paraphysics uses on their dronemon (specifically pattern r49 on their dronemon).

Either try another server, or change your connection info (ie - your ident, real name, etc) so that it no longer matches the pattern. You'll have to contact a paraphysics oper to have the ban removed if you don't want to wait the 10 days for it to expire.

That rule seeks repetitive nicks with specific idents that are generated by drones creating connections with a fixed algorithm.
