Does your bot handle incoming private messages? Chanserv may be replying to you with a useful error message.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I'm sure that Chanserv like any good bot won't respond to a privmsg with a privmsg, but with a notice.

    From the RFC:

    The NOTICE message is used similarly to PRIVMSG. The difference between NOTICE and PRIVMSG is that automatic replies must never be sent in response to a NOTICE message. This rule applies to servers too - they must not send any error reply back to the client on receipt of a notice. The object of this rule is to avoid loops between a client automatically sending something in response to something it received. This is typically used by automatons (clients with either an AI or other interactive program controlling their actions) which are always seen to be replying lest they end up in a loop with another automaton.
