I think that the command was correct, the problem was that the command has triggered a bug on the ircu so undernet went down. I would like to thank all users that worked on restoring undernet :) You did a great job all!

I don't think that was an error, seems the host *tm.net.my was K-lined, and don't know how come, I was K-lined too.

The gline yesterday was due to an oper glineing *@.1.1.1 so that matched *@. which somehow matched *@* so instead of copying 1.1.1.1 he copied .1.1.1 and whole undernet glined.


As for today the massive k-line took place on london2.uk.eu.undernet.org. Dunno wht caused it yet.

I think it seems pretty clear that nobody should be using GNUWorld to set any kind of K/G line until the deamon has been tested and debugged, nore should this version have been deployed until it was fully tested.

These kinds of 'bugs' shouldn't be played down as 'oops, oh well' kind of attitude, we can lose users with this ongoing nightmare.. and there is a lot of speculation and a total lack of fact as to what the real problem is, I hate to troll, but this problem needs to be addressed big time.

I second that totally.. throwing untested software on a mainstream server is about as smart as... well, thats about as dumb as it gets, things like this is begging for attack attempts, and its just going to mean more downtime in the long run.. I also noticed Oslo2 got hit by the mass k:lines too.

yeah...

Anyway for those who are wondering what that +D mode is...

Channel mode +D : Delayed join mode. Joining users will not be shown until they are opped/voiced, change the topic or speak. Note that hidden users will not be revealed when the mode is cleared. Hidden users can be seen with /NAMES -d #channel

Well yeah...not untill they say something anyway :)

I don't know if this new channel mode will help much, it might just encourage ctcp/persistant flooding... What I would like to see is better syncronisation code, I've all too many times seen avalanche flooders continue their flood after the channel is locked, and even seen floods override the channel limit.
