Another one would be why do lamers steel nicks such as zT? Mostly romanians.....what is it with that? Do you feel cool to have such a nick? zT and other bots are on the network to help people. To make helpers life easier.... Sometimes i don`t understand humans......mostly my own people, romanians...

I agree with you, there's no reason to steal such nicknames. But what if I take a nickname, which may be on one of an IRCop's psybnc's or bot, and I just like that nickname, and that's the only reason I jupe it with my egg. Is that an abuse of Undernet's rules and regulations !? A very obvious example is TaddPole, and his eggie, Spot. I had that nickname on my egg, and I got g-lined of course, and I had to pay to my shell company for the time that domain has been g-lined. I think that's an abuse from the Operator, as nicknames are free on Undernet, and I didn't use any illegal ways to get that nickname. It may be a little bit frustrating for TP, but after all, he's a user of Undernet too, like everybody else.
my life might be someone else's dream.

i think that those kind of nicks must be reserved for irc services.
thats because a nickname should reflex/show some that identifies you, that make u different than the other humans.
for example, it should show "your power/forces", or something of your live... ur capabilities, ur favorite sports team, your favorite music/band, your name/age/real-life nickname/first name/last name, or something of that

I doubt they will reserv all 1 letter nicknames for irc services, there are only few of them reserved, like X, W, Y etc..If they all are restriced, guess how many ppl will join cservice asking about it and eventually complaining about it, and there aren`t so many irc services as are 1 letter nicks

Some servers prefer to keep their U:lines restricted to all 1letter names and nickserv, chanserv etc... other just keep X,W and *serv. Its up to the server admins i think...

It`s odd by my knowledge if servers don`t have about the same ircd.conf they have the custom to "fight". As for example...if has added in it`s u:line the single letter nicknames a user on that server cannot change his nick into one of the letters of the alphabet. But, if on doesn`t have those letters in the U:line a user connected on this server can use those nicks.

So here comes the funny part: in a network servers must as i said have the same ircd.conf (the same nick-lenght, away-lenght, user modes, channel modes, etc). So...the important issues as nick-lenght are the same on every server. But admins modified things like max-channels....and even the u:line.

So my oppinion is that undernet should have it`s own ircd.conf if it doesn`t already have one and admins should not be able to modify those variables.
