Room Mods excluded

Post by Jimbo1 »


I have looked and looked so I am not sure if this is possible or I have missed it some where..

Is their a exemption function for room moderators, I know IRC ops are excluded but what's about the regular moderator's so they would not get hit but spamfilters set and if so how would you exclude them. Thanks

Simply put: No.
This is because chanops do not require an o:line and are only there to keep the peace in a channel.

A longer explanation as to why this is a "No", is because anyone can be a ChanOp which would defeat the purpose of the spam filter or at least greatly reduce it's effectiveness. Adding a ChanOp exemption will add additional resource drain for very little gain.

My advice is to be very careful as to how you write your spamfilters. IE, not every irc:// or http:// link is spam.
