Banned for spamming?

Postby Fuzzypig » Tue Mar 21, 2006 9:21 pm

I tried to log onto the efnet irc server today and was immediately disconnected with the message : BANNED Spamming is not allowed.

I have only been on efnet once, on #badlogic

I don't see any reason why I should have been banned. Please tell me why I was banned.

Instead of being banned from "the efnet irc server", you were probably banned from one of the many efnet IRC servers. Each server has its own rules, it's own policies, its own staff, and its own bans. Try connecting to a different server, and you may be able to get on.

Also, the ban does not necessarily mean that you specifically were spamming. It could mean that someone using your ISP was spamming, and that person got your whole ISP banned, or maybe people using your ISP in your area. Once you get on another efnet irc server, you can /stats p <irc server you were banned on>. For example:" /stats p irc.blackened.com ". That will give you a list of the IRC operators on that server and their idle time in seconds. /msg them and politely ask them about the ban.

If you can't get on using any of the 50 or so servers, you can also use http://chat.efnet.org to get on IRC and then you can contact an oper.

"spamming is not allowed" generally comes from an automated ban by TCM or other monitor bot.
if you change targets often and quickly (a lot of /joins, sending messages to many channels or users in a short period, etc), it generates a server message warning of spamming action. often bots will kline on this automatically.
if this happened by mistake, connect to another server, or use http://chat.efnet.org and use /stats p [irc.server.name] to contact an operator from the server from which you were banned to have the ban lifted.
In God we trust,
Everyone else must have an X.509 certificate.
