The banbot in action
Last Thursday, Yiri ported the banbot to RL.

The banbot is a bot authored by aempirei. It joins every public channel on a given IRC network and proceeds to announce the existence of Bantown. It then /invites every user it encounters to #bantown and adds their nick to its queue.

When a nick in the queue joins bantown, it bans them.

The banbot sometimes leads to interesting dialogue with the administrators of the largest IRC networks in the world:

  01:07 <@oclet> 22:05 -!- Irssi: Starting query in mzima with Lindy_
  01:07 <@oclet> 22:05 <Lindy_> my want to stop spamming

  01:08 <@sdf-> hhahah
  01:08 <@sdf-> promise her +v

root66 was never in Bantown.

In the future, an advanced version of the Banbot will serve as Matt LeBlanc's bodyguard

You heard me! Never in Bantown. It's a lie!

Banbot vs Freenode

  18:37 <@BearPerson> freenode is a network about open-source software and other projects of peers helping peers
  18:37 -%- mode/#bant0wn [-bb *[email protected] *!*@*] by oclet
  18:37 <@oclet> i heard it was for warez
  18:37 <@oclet> and pron
  18:37 <@BearPerson> you're quite welcome to hang out in the support channels and get or provide support
  18:38 <@BearPerson> but we're a bit harsh about warez and spam
  18:38 <@oclet> yeah me too
  18:38 <@oclet> i hate when people dont pay for software
  18:38 <@BearPerson> check out
  18:38 <@oclet> it makes me want to slice my dong with a razor blade
  18:38 <@BearPerson> that's probably the most complete list of IRC networks out there
  18:39 <@BearPerson> I'm sure you'll find a network that is less harsh about this sort of stuff
  18:39 <@oclet> sweet. wanna harass quakenet with me?
  18:39 <@oclet> it will be teh l0lz
  18:40 <@BearPerson> at least, it will be more appropriate ;-)
  18:40 <@BearPerson> you see, quakenet is more IRC and "chaos" oriented than freenode, though not as much as EFnet
  18:41 <@BearPerson> freenode is neutral territory. We're here to provide a place for friendly support, which you can use or provide if you want
  18:42 <@BearPerson> but we can't be that place if we're constantly running after spammers and cleaning up channel wars
  18:42 <@oclet> i'm just here for the pr0n and the warez
  18:42 <@oclet> i dont know anything about spam
  18:42 <@BearPerson> then you're on the wrong network
  18:42 <@oclet> are you a furry?
  18:45 <@BearPerson> just keep this off freenode please, okay?
  18:45 <@oclet> sure
  18:45 <@oclet> tell me when you take the ban off of tor
  18:45 <@oclet> so i can do it again
