Try this one:

Code: Select all

/SPAMFILTER ADD pc block - - (^| )#.+
But I think this will generate lots of hits and annoy all your users. They'll hate you for that... So I'd rather not use it :P
Better match REAL spam... or close those channels that are advertising too much... or gline the spammers manually... This spamfilter is an overkill, imho. :?

They way #mirc on undernet does it is the best way imo, they have a bot hop the channel every so often and check for messages if it gets one kick and ban the user.

I really don't like that...
It's very annoying having a user (bot) joining/parting every X minutes. Don't they just use this method because they don't have our very nice /spamfilter system? :P
