< == Using AlexSchroeder as my nick ==

Here’s how I set up irssi on a new system. I usually use rcirc, however.

/ircnet add -nick kensanata -user alex -realname "Alex Schroeder" -autosendcmd "/^MSG nickserv identify blabla; /wait -freenode 2000; " freenode
/server add -auto -ircnet freenode
/channel add -auto #emacs freenode
/channel add -auto #wiki freenode
/channel add -auto #oddmuse freenode
/channel add -auto #rcirc freenode
/channel add -auto #epfarms freenode
/ignore -replies xah

Actually the list of channels varies. And these days I use rcirc instead of irssi.


First, be an op, and then ban somebody:

    /mode #emacs +o kensanata


    /msg chanserv op #emacs

Then (also: foo!*@* or foo*!*@*):

    /mode #emacs +b *!*user@*.domain

Or (illustrating quiet instead of ban, and registered users instead of mask) [1]:

    /mode #emacs +q $a:ams

The ban mask is as follows: NICK!USERNAME-ON-REMOTE-HOST@IP-ADDR-OR-DOMAIN. All three parts, the nick, username and host identifier, accept * as a shell style glob anywhere within themselves.

List all banned patterns:

    /mode #emacs +b

Unban somebody:

    /mode #emacs -b %borg!*@*


Set the channel to registered users only:

    /mode #emacs +r

It seems that /whois nick nick does this. [2]
