anti-join part flood /mode +D

Post by BlasterQ »

we are experiencing massive flooding in our channel on a daily basis.
+r is a good channel mode to prevent these flooders, however it affects many chatters too who are not registered with X.
since majority of channels have chatters with no undernet registration, i think a much better way of preventing flooders should be implemented.
we noticed that all flooders have set themselves to deaf mode (+d).
so when you do a /whois on them, their channels will appear like -#cafe, instead of just #cafe.
since chatters very rarely uses the deaf mode, i think preventing chatters who are in deaf mode will be a nice addition to channel modes.
so i would suggest if setting the channel to +D, undernet will prevent chatters in deaf mode to enter the channel, forcing the flooders to remove their deaf modes and will make their drones susceptible to flooding themselves out.
in this way, unregisterd chatters can still get in the channel.
what do you think?

We have that mode already and its called delayed join
+D hides joins unless user is voiced/opped, changes topic or speaks. When the mode is cleared, if there are still hidden users in the channel , server will set automatically +d. To see hidden users type: /names -d #channel. +d will be cleared when all hidden users become visible. :)

so in short: you want a new mode, when enabled, users with +d can't join ?

ask a coder in #coder-com or wait untill you get an answer here :)
If you ask me, the bots would just turn off their deaf mode, and continue flooding the channel.
they won't get flooded off, since they are not flooding themselves or eachother, they flood the channel.

I remember a couple of years ago there was a script floating around that people thought might be the cure for flooding.

Well, As I bump this thread it is 2011 and when you do a search for flood security you find more articles on how to flood than how to prevent flooding. Why does everybody want to be a hacker?? I had to run outlook repair about seven times last week because of a bug that somehow I let get started through IRC and the transfer of files created with DVD burning software. I don't know how that noob convinced me to click his link, it destroyed my archived e-mail files.
