1. Why does /samode exist?

2. Why the * someserver sets mode: when someone uses it?

Why do you want to make users not think that it is oper overriding?

The server they're on is irrelevant.

/samode mode changes appear to be sent by the server to which the oper who used /samode is connected.

Also, /samode doesnt require can_override, even though it is technically overriding.

Where else would the mode change come from without coming from the opers nick, and bearing in mind that when a mode change for a channel is received by another server from a user who is an oper and isnt an op on that channel, the other servers send override server notices.

Sorry to sound so repetitive, but why don't we want the mode change to come from the oper's nick?
