How can a channel be excluded from Spamfilter?

Post by JRBlood » Sat Jun 26, 2010 7:09 pm

I have a channel on our network that seems to be exempt from spamfilters. Here's an example:

Code: Select all

/spamfilter + c tempshun - Spammer example\.com\/images\/

If someone says http://www.example.com/images/image.jpg in any other channel, the spamfilter kicks in, but if they say it in one particular channel, it doesn't.

I've looked in the docs and Google, but can't find anything about this. What am I missing? Something in the channel mode? We're using Anope for services.

Check set::spamfilter::virus-help-channel

This channel will be exempt from spamfilter triggers, and the default is #help.

Checking now...

Our help channel is named differently, which may be why I didn't notice it in the config.

Stealth, you da man! Sure enough:

Code: Select all

spamfilter         { ban-time 1d; ban-reason "Spam/Advertising"; virus-help-channel "#channame"; except "#channame"; };
Thanks for pointing that out to me. I should have looked at the config a LOT closer. :)
