spamfilter option

Post by Orobas »

Hi Folks..

Got a scenario i'd like to explore.. I think.. i know the answer is not possible or its a frowned upon notion .. either way its okay as we can just use a soft-warn action.. but i would like to probe the thought anyway..

Looking to get the server to notify us (IRCops) that a url has been used .. but we do not wish to alert the user(s) in question.. is this possible.. we are on unreal 5.0.7. or are only able to use soft-warn and notify the user that the url has been seen by us.. but it is not blocked?

UnrealIRCd will not help, under no circumstances, networks admins to spy on their users.

With that said, it is possible if you know how and where to change the source code.

You must understand that I speak as user and also network administrator.

Removing the ability for users to be warned that they've hit a spamfilter, would open a door for administrators to spy on their users.

That's why UnrealIRCd does ALWAYS send a message to the user that have committed the "infraction".

I totally agree which is why i did mention we had the soft-warn we can use so i was fully aware of it.
Thanks for the clarification that i hadnt missed anything and have things set right :)

Just keep in mind that soft actions allow registered users to bypass any spamfilter.

That's the idea under the soft actions, such as soft-gline which allows registered users to bypass, as example, DNSBL lists.
