hello

i have been on efnet for as long as I can remember, and still am.. but in all honesty can tell you i have definitely been migrating to other networks slowly but surely; in particular, Link-Net.

EFnet is seriously falling behind in the times with leaving everyones IP out in the open. As an op in a rather large channel, I'm threatened almost DAILY by retard packet kids who get upset when they get banned. They port scan, ping, do basically any other trick in the book to try and knock you offline until your forced into buying a BNC. There are plenty of other reasons as well; most of us users are trying to surf more ANONYMOUSLY, and this is NOT accomplished by featuring a users full IP/address.

A +h (hostmangling) mode would be the most practical solution, while I guess a proper spoof would be the most deseriable, certainly.

AT THE VERY LEAST please get some kind of host mangling going on. Cable modem and regular internet users do NOT want to be forced into buying a BNC just because you pissed off some retard that wants to send packets your way. Not to mention the every day increasing watchful eye of various governments monitoring your internet activity.. Lame.


Opers who k-line people for reasons that apparently don't apply to anyone else... A fellow named 'djp' is NOTORIOUS for this, and after he received a ban from a large channel on EFnet, proceeded to /kill people for days later.. Not to mention, what is with people getting killed for 'nickname juping' all of a sudden.. I used to join #EFnet and ask someone to kill a bot that would steal my nickname, and the ops in there would BAN me for asking such a silly question. Now though, I see people like this 'djp' k-lining people for 'nickname juping', and once that person is knocked offline, a lamer named 'akill' sets up a bot to hold the nickname for him.

That brings me to the last part -- What the hells the deal with someone all of a sudden just being able to take the nickname you've had for the last 5 years or whatever. I mean, youd have to take extreme precautions and do things like set up multiple IRC process just to hold your nickname in case your BNC craps out in the middle of the night, or your box goes down, or the power goes out, or the list goes on. At least put some kind of NickServ type deal that will reset the nickname if it hasnt signed on in 5 days. Hell, make it 3 days for all I care, but nobody wants to have to keep worrying about some n00b or someone you pissed off on IRC stealing your name the second you get disconnected from a server


All in all, enforce the rules for everyone, or don't enforce them at all. Theres enough stealing of nicknames going on without IRCOPs interfering for their friends.. And of course the best solution of all would be to employ some way better security:

- SSL Connections.
- Hostname spoofing or mangling <3 <3 <3
- Some type of nick holder, even if extremely temporary.
- Fix the god damn Max Send-Q exceeded/excess flooding if you join channels too fast.. What purpose is this even serving other than to make someone repeatedly excess flood and spam a channel 500 times?
- A bigger ban list. This network is riddled with spam bots, spam "trap" bots, and another annoying toolbags, and usually the only solution from an IRCOP which you'd expect to help is "uhh, do a /stats p servername and ask someone there"..


Otherwise I'm sure myself and plenty of other people will continue the move to other networks, even if it is slowly.. It will continue to happen.

Thanks for listening
