[16:37:23] * Peng (~itoldyoutos@PenguinsRuletheWorld) Quit (Excess flood)
For those of you who have lately been having problems with excess flood, here is the reason.
Lately, we have had some issues with a number of bots connecting and making life havoc for large numbers of users.
While we are working on a more long-term method of preventing this problem, in the meantime, we have lowered the allowed flood rate of the server back to (more sane) levels -- you may perform roughly 30 commands in 3 seconds before being disconnected.
For those of you who are now being 'Excess Flood'ed off, you may want to investigate /NS AJOIN to join your channels, and client-side throttling in order to slow down the rate at which your client sends commands to the server.
Thanks, and sorry for any inconvenience caused.
