us at irc@dks.ca, or you can issue a /stats p to find an

- You may also join #irc.dks.ca and/or #ca-efnet to ask
questions about this server, or ca-efnet in general.
Or use some other server: http://www.efnet.org/?module=servers

Ps. Clones = several connections from one host to irc. Be careful not to load additional clients in the future.

You can do the math. You are banned for 1440 minutes, just as it says -- not for months.

The kline has now been lifted.

The important about a kline like this isnt to punish, but to make you learn that you shouldnt have excessive clients from the same machine connected to EFnet at the same time.

Have a nice day.

-services.xo(Max.)- clients: 5 at Mon Feb 2 14:25:57 2004 EST
-services.xo(Max.)- unique : 2 at Mon Feb 2 14:22:55 2004 EST


that definitely sounds like clones. if you're not sure why you had so many connections, check your computer for virii

Not to make a semantic argument (of course I would!), but the a-retentive would probably suggest that punishment is the tool with which you teach or condition users not to have multiple connections. ;-)

Seriously, though, it would be nice - at least in some connection classes - to warn the users that are overstepping their quota with a message first, and K-line only afterwards (if they are still in violation of the rules).

I agree, however the OOmon who set the kline automaticly doesnt have this feature as far as i know, but i guess we can request it in the next release.

in a perfect world, yes, you would msg every client that was over the limit and notify them before you klined them.
but when you get to work in the morning and tcm reports 15 hostmasks with 4-6 clients each and you know probably all but 1 are eggdrops, it seems rather pointless to try messaging them all.
if it's a real person at the client, they can see the kline message when they reconnect. if it's a bot, it probably isn't going to learn either way unless the owner sees all 6 of his/her bots get disconnected all at once.
