Hello,I was recently on EFnet and noticed that there is No IP/Host masking,and i wanted something done about it,On that day i got hacked,Because the staff does not protect their users,I realise this is a big network,but still there should be some protection,All those hackers out there,Please,do something about it!

This has been discussed many times. It's entirely up to the admins.

The admins have discussed this many times and have decided not to offer this service.

Best to get a VPN or shell account and install a bouncer on it (ZNC, BNC, etc). This is what many people have done to cover their true IP for years on EFnet.
