Spam is not uncommon on undernet, from various spam bots not in any of the channels you'r visiting, so it has to be some elaborate spam-bot-network of some sort.

I would like a stricter way, for lets say registered users to enable / disable (preferdably enabled by default) to ignore PRIVMSG from unregistered users. That would save me tons of time sending spam-reports to cservice, and it would be something users can choose or not choose to enforce.

I've seen that this type of privmsg-rule applies to anonymous-users on the irc network freenode and I have to say, I like it... Alot.

I hope to see some progress, with this or some other method that doesn't require some smart enough client that allowes you to script those annoying anonymous-user privmsgs.

Thanks. // fatbrain aka Jonas.

On all servers running ircU 2.10.12.* try the following:

/quote silence +*!*@*,+~*!*@*.undernet.org,+~*!*@undernet.org

This will silence everyone EXCEPT (thats what the ~ after the + but before the nick means) *.undernet.org and undernet.org, the latter enabling X to still be able to reply to you, and the former allowing registered users to talk to you (I believe coders have done this in the same way as they have coded bans, where it will work whether they are +x or not, they just have to be logged in, but I could be wrong ;).

Does this answer your question ?

Will that give whoever is privmsg me a notice that he's beeing silenced? Otherwise it could look as if I'm just ignorant, or don't care. It would be nice with a -"You have to register to able to send privmsgs!" or something.

xplora, you are not wrong ;)

fatbrain, the reply can't be "You have to register to be able to send privmsgs!" because of this simple reason: it's the SILENCE feature, not some "Registered only" or "Account only" usermode. Here's an example: I can /quote silence +*!*@*.users.undernet.org and if you get that reply "You have to register to be able to send privmsgs!" it will be false and nonsense.

Best Regards,
Mit.

I would have suggested using an /away message for it, but it appears silence blocks that from responding as well.

A suggestion for the coders then, fix silence so that away messages still get returned regardles of whether the /away user has the sending user /silence'd ;)
