/mode #channel +b ~q:nickname

Means they can join a channel, but not speak unless voice or higher.

Of course, then users get smart and use /nick get around it. So add +b ~n:nickname to go with it.

Yes, w00t is right, for example, you can set a ban with the mask ~q:*!*@blah.blah.com.

Well I don't see the point of such a feature, +b ~q handles it just fine, but anyway, modules couldn't do that even if they wanted to.

Not quite what I meant. Small example (for clarification, for the * Mode and * Kicked lines, the source is in parens, and target is not :P ):

Code: Select all

* Mode (Op): +b ~q:*!*@lamers.host.here
* Lamer slaps Op around a bit with a large trout
#channel Cannot send to channel (You are banned)
* Lamer is now known as DieOp
* DieOp is now known as Lamer
* Mode (Op): +Nb-b *!*@lamers.host.here ~q:*!*@lamers.host.here
* Kicked (Op): Lamer (bye)
Similar to how you can change nicks even under +m (so you get those annoying /nick voice_plz people), you can change nicks even under ~q. Throw a ~n on it and they're more effecitively silenced.

Of course, if you don't want to clog the banlist, just set a full +b on him. Then make a module that allows you to set +e ~j:*!*@* (~j would presumably be join-ban (like ~q is message-ban, and ~n is nickchange-ban) (of course, with +e it would be join-ban-except :P)) so that everyone can still join.
