gline abuse

Postby f1rePP4L » Mon Sep 24, 2007 8:00 pm

Hello, earlier today I was glined by "zi" under the pretense of spamming, after i posted a link ONCE to a public, non-copyrighted song in mp3 format. Since when is that spamming? If so I believe EFnet's Spam Policy needs a serious looking at, when someone can gline for posting one link, let alone a valid, non-malicious, interesting, good link. When it is a opers discretion to gline over his personal opinion about something, and then use false pretenses like "Spamming" to do so, its a sad day on the Eris "Free" Network.

Have you read the FAQ?

The "Free" in "Eris Free" has NOTHING to do with how the network is run. We no longer have a server named Eris. Thus, the network is Eris Free.

If you want a network with no rules, then feel free to start one.

You spammed. There was, apparently, proof enough that three opers/admins thought you should be gone.

Poof, you're gone.

If you expected that response, why do you post in such a way that you know is incorrect?

Also, coming on #efnet.org and spamming that petition? Not the way to go, unless you want that host to be G-lined, too.

I'm usually not a defender of the the 4th Reich, otherwise known as ircops, and yes zi is a genuine asshole whether or not he was responsible, and to quote zi "efnet.org is irrelevant any more", but, that being said there are numerous channels on efnet that would not allow spam of any type. Channel operators will ban any/all spam, url's, email addresses etc. and I fully agree with it because it is a place to chat and we shouldn't be subjected to random advertising, trolling, scams etc. So maybe next time you should ask first, or "look before you leap".

I believe he was talking about the channel, #efnet.org, which went to hell years ago.

An admin who initiates a gline request can do so for any reason (this was a vote passed on 06/18/04), and an oper can make a gline request on any user(s) for:
spamming, flooding, attempts to exploit security vulnerabilities with efnet servers or clients, drone nets, hacked machines/clients, distribution of malicious files (trojans, viruses, etc..).

In regards to oper zi: he is a hard working oper focusing on improving user experience (like most of us), and he typically receives insults from people who are abusing the network or people who don't understand his motives.

My two cents regarding channels on efnet:
(The) common belief on efnet (is) that nicks and channels are not owned. They are simply "occupied" or "in use". Excerpt from irchelp efnetfaq page.
Anyway, back to the thread subject.. Perhaps the gline will help you understand using an efnet server for chat is a privilege and not a just claim or right.

Bottom line: play nice! :)
