rwwh00k: Conditions under which you can banforward from one channel to another on freenode: 1) you are currently opped in both channels, or 2) you are opped in the source channel and the destination channel is +F. autobleh attempts to op you in both channels to fulfil (1).00:16
rww(#ubuntu-ops is +F)00:16
rwwHeh, eir-ubottu's getting thrown straight into #ubuntu? I would have expected #ubuntu-offtopic or some other less intense channel that wouldn't mind breakage so much :P02:10
elkyrww if it goes in -ot, we'll probably start trying to make it break.02:27
rwwPerhaps the bots team secretly agrees with me and plans to make it break by removing all of #ubuntu's bans :302:28
rwwbut my problematic sense of humor aside, I'm glad it's happening :)02:29
rwwany particular reason not to remove all those +q nick!*@* set by FloodBot? I assume the users involved are either banned by IP or k-lined :\02:31
elkythey shouldn't be there longer than a week, but afaik nobody in the bots team has figured a way to check this or something02:33
elkyoh, misread02:33
rwwsorry, I veered onto a different topic02:34
elkyyou might notice that some of them are strings which are not welcome, or are symbolic "this person is  banned here but is hard to actually keep out"02:36
rwwthey're owned by FloodBot, and are thus automatic ;)02:37
rwwcute, I can't find them in BT :\02:39
rwwanyways, the only ones I consider objectionable out of http://paste.debian.net/hidden/181b1c61/ are the ikonia* ones, and maco already covered that with a wildcard +q02:40
* rww really doubts we can mute every misspelled permutation of staffer nicks02:40
elkythe ikonia ones are a bit too specific given the pattern they're banning. just get rid of all those02:47
rwwoops, missed two02:54
h00krww: ah, that's what it is02:57
rwwh00k: it's another one of those ircd-seven things that people don't tend to know :)02:58
h00krww: :d02:58
rwwps, yes, I know I'm opped in #ubuntu. I'm looking through the ban list for removal candidates again and don't feel like spamming the channel with +-o02:59
h00kHEY rww, you know you're opped in #ubuntu?03:00
elkycan we just ban that isp? :P03:02
rwwI keep awesome ideas like that for #ubuntu-offtopic, sorry.03:03
rwwmy rationale behind that ban is that keeping bans on lars's dynamic IPs is pointless, but having one for "you're evading this ban" is nice, so we may as well make one that catches him at least some of the time and is informative03:04
rwwand then continue spamming banlist with him when he slips through and leave them for rww to clean up when he changes hostnames :P03:04
elkyyou seem to enjoy it so03:06
h00kI was tempted to /opme, /deop rww, /deopme03:07
h00kbut decided not to03:07
rwwsome people count the number of steps in staircases or separate out M&M colors. I fix banlists :(03:07
elkyh00k, he would have made you do the banlist cleaning instead03:08
rwwelky: I hope you're appreciating, btw, that I'm keeping my definition of "removable ban" far, far away from UW :P03:08
h00kelky: :(03:08
elkyrww, it probably needs reviewing, there'll be some multiples03:08
rwwalthough that's mainly because it's rather easy to get on my "go away forever" list by trolling there03:09
elkyi can see several removables just at a quick glance. don't have time right now though03:10
rwwIt's not a huge concern. Unlike #ubuntu, that channel's scheduled to fill its banlist in years, not months.03:11
rwwactually, it's not really a concern at all03:11
rwwalrighty, #ubuntu's down below 70% again, I'm done for the day03:11
Flanneldown to 70%?  You'll never get anywhere in life by shooting for average!04:24
rwwFlannel: elky didn't like my plan for... more notable reductions :P04:30
Flannelrww: nuke the banlist from orbit?04:30
elkyrww, clean banlists make it easier to keep track of who is actually banned04:32
rwwI for one think we should give Bacta and r00t4rd3d a second chance, anyway. Perhaps they have become productive and pleasant members of society by now.04:33
bazhangshould program the floodbots to kick upon those06:48
IdleOnethat would start the inevitable "I didn't get a warning" argument06:49
bazhang"so sensitive"06:49
rwwIdleOne: !nowarning is <reply> The terms of service and IRC Guidelines you were linked to upon joining the channel constitute a warning about how to behave correctly. Your failure to read those guidelines is not a failing of the channel operators.06:54
IdleOnethat solves it.06:54
IdleOneNow to get someone to approve having the bots kick on lmgtfy links06:54
rwwnah, that's what trigger.pl is for06:55
rwwit has been alleged that the r in rww stands for Robotic :P06:56
rwwI just had a mental image of me autokicking ubottu for replying to !test | lmgtfy.com06:58
* rww shelves that idea06:59
rwwLjL: Please examine your #ubuntu scrollback and figure out why +q Avinash_Sonawane!*@* and +q resc_user_2169!*@* weren't automatically removed when those users stopped failing at Enter usage.07:04
rwwIdleOne: it's best to put the technical overview URL instead of a download server link so that 1) people can download flavors other than Ubuntu and Server, 2) people get the usual warnings about it being a developer snapshot.07:10
rwwin #ubuntu+1's topic, that is07:10
IdleOnego ahead :)07:11
rwwalso the usual known issues and other notes that nobody reads >.>07:11
bazhangI read them07:11
bazhangQED, I'm a nobody07:12
knomecan somebody look after painkiller in #xubuntu? i need to go, and i'm not sure how this will end08:20
knomelooks like he's silent now, but for reference, he has been really thick (need to tell several times to do something), pasting multiline stuff and also used the f-word once08:25
yagoothere a reason for oCean to act like a troll?08:40
yagooI can suggest google search results if it helps out people.08:40
yagoono need to act rude oCean.08:40
ubottuWhile Google is useful for helpers, many newer users don't have the google-fu yet. Please don't tell people to "google it" when they ask a question.08:40
yagoojust for the other ops see how you are acting out there.08:40
yagooI did not say "google it"08:41
yagoolet all the other ops see in here how you love to troll in there..08:41
yagoonot helpful on your part.08:41
yagoono thank you.08:41
yagoo"lotuspsychje, (try google: list of webcam secutity software site:wikipedia.org)"08:41
yagoogood bye08:41
IdleOneyagoo: sometimes even the most useful hints on what to google is not helpful to someone who just does'nt have the "fu"...err forget it. oCean stop trolling08:42

ikoniasuch stupidity also that people saying "hey ikonia stop spamming" when it's come from a user using the nick ikonia2114:08
PiciWe had people dropping in #ubuntu just to say that.14:08
ikonianot a massive deal, appreciate the effort though14:08
h00kcause, you know, you can't /query or /msg, etc.14:08

rww@comment 42396 seanmc98 has been asked repeatedly to stop asking support questions in #ubuntu-offtopic and still is. Remove banforward once user has agreed to follow channel topic and listen to ops instead of /parting, coming back later, and ignoring them.19:24
ubottuThe operation succeeded.19:24
