[Discourse.ros.org] [Site Feedback] Spam in freenode irc channel

Tully Foote via ros-users


The current freenode spambot attack also hits the #ros channel. Since the spam happens the whole day it would be nice if an op could take care of things there.

[Discourse.ros.org] [Site Feedback] Spam in freenode irc channel

I put the channel (`#ros`) in moderated mode (`+m`). I gave voice (`+v`) to people I had seen before and operator status to a few others (`+o`). I'm not sure what else to do for now. The spammer's rotate nicknames so fast, I can't moderate it manually.

Thank you, this is much better. Lets hope that we can unset moderated soon.

Another channel I'm in has set [+q $~a](https://freenode.net/kb/answer/registration) which disallows unidentified users to speak - not saying that this is better..

Can anyone please update the channel topic?

> Freenode is being spammed, message OP's for +v (...)

The channel is no longer set to moderated (+m) which is why the topic is confusing. Also the register only (+r) mode might not be needed anymore.
