If you’re a channel, network, or server operator, and received abuse from one of these addresses:
Handling abuse from our ZNC service is easy to handle, without banning the entire service, causing disruption to legitimate users. Every user on our ZNC has a unique ident (assuming the network supports identd), which is nearly impossible to change.
For channels, all you need to do is either ban only the ident, or ban in an ident@host format. For freenode, just ban the ident.
For network or server-wide bans, an ident@host is sufficient.
You can also report us @ irc.freenode.net #hostsailor
