How to block/ignore unwanted private messages
« on: August 13, 2018, 06:35:20 PM »
How to ignore unwanted messages:
nickname = the nickname of the person you want to block/ignore
your-nick = your own nickname

 /mode your-nick +Rc will block unregistered users (R), and those who are not in the same rooms you are in (c)

 /ignore nickname 3 for messages in the channel from the specified nickname. (the 3 picks up the encrypted ip so they will remain ignored if they simply change nicknames)

 /ignore -pndi nickname "ignores" the nickname from private messaging you.

[/ignore -l will show your ignore list]

 /silence +nickname to block pvts and notices from that nickname. This now blocks you from seeing ALL messages from the nickname you specify, including blocking you from seeing what they type in the chatroom(s). Perhaps Useful when there's some jerk in the room and no ops available.

 /silence + without any nickname will block ALL chatters' messages. You probably don't want to use this one or it will look like the room is dead, lol!

[/silence without any nickname will show your silenced list]
Using the +g mode to deal with private messages:
And then there is +g - To use this, type /mode your-nick +g
you will get a message in your Status window (usually the window that has your nickname):
* your-nick sets mode: +g

Then when someone privates you, if you have not previously accepted them you get this message:
nickname [email protected] is messaging you, and you have umode +g. Use /ACCEPT +nickname to allow.
and you type /ACCEPT +nickname to add them to your accepted privates list.

Then they are allowed to private you.  When they private you after that, their nickname will appear in your list of rooms/chats as any usual private chat request.

To remove a nickname from your accepted privates list, use the same command with the minus (-) symbol instead of the plus (+) [Example: /ACCEPT -nickname

I hope this is helpful.
