    Hey fellas

    Can anyone explain to me why I am no longer able to go into efnet?

    I try my local server..it has IRC unresolved...
    I use the chicago server...(I have been using this for mths)
    Suddenly...it's banned me...
    There is not a efnet server That I can use.
    Either I am Dlined, banned or I am told I do not have authorization...

    WHY>???~~~~
    PLZ HELP~

    you didn't pull a Chanchai and type in something like:

    /mode #vfhome +i...

    did you? /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Ooooohhhhh..... I know what it is.... you hit the tilde (~) limit on EFnet. That's gotta be it/versus/images/icons/smile.gif

    And I seriously conjured up two possibilities~~!

    Though the tilde one is rather remote. But you never know... maybe EFnet feels that all of your tilde signs are costing them more bandwidth than my two sentences per 3 second rate of typing/versus/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Anyways... Hmm... sounds like you answered your question though. You may have been banned (been there, sucked, publicly humiliated, etc...). Oddly enough, #vfhome has been opless the last few days I've checked so it's most likely something to do with the EFnet servers. Guess they saw Crocodile Dundee in LA and decided to ban the aussies.

    You probably just got DSL or cable modem huh?

    try irc.cris.com
    and
    irc.emory.edu

    you may need to install an ident server

    many efnet servers will ban you, usually cause of a firewall issue. This isnt a permanent ban at all though.
