Chatterbox abuse and possible remedies
Well, I read everyone's opinion on the topic and it has
changed my opinion.
1.) I think we should have the ban feature ready to go if we
start to have a problem
2.) Have /ignore available now per user.
3.) I am not sure if you have it implemented, but make sure
you limit the amount of text people can enter to say 200
characters. This will prevent some buffer overflows. You
might also want to do a security audit. I would be happy to
help you with this.
4.) If someone comes into the chatterbox we can protest its
misuse by explaining what the person is doing wrong and then
everyone refusing to talk until the person apologizes or
Does code make a sound if no one is there to type it?
