New CBB IRC channel!

What can I say? It doesn't fit above, put it here. Also the location of board rules/info.

Freenode's not working for me. Other IRC things are working fine though. [}:(]

Freenode's been having connection problems for me for some 4h now. A couple of days ago they reported that they've been experiencing some denial-of-service attacks, which explains the behaviour.

Some other person said that directly connecting to adams.freenode.net works. I'm trying it now
Edit: it works!

Ive been trying to connect to the IRC channel but I've been banned. [D:]

I know this has happened to another user. What should I do?

A server ban? Hmm. Do you use SASL to log on? I know that unless I log on with SASL, it won't accept me in mobile data.

It's like NickServ, but it gets processed after the ident response, rather than after the server messages and whatnot. I'd also recommend starting at chat.freenode.net, over the other servers.

You'll need to configure this in your client.

Just a question, does it give Amy reason as to why you might be banned? Give the whole message here

A listing in DroneBL is NOT always related to spam. But in most cases because of an open proxy !!!
Are you using your VPN to connect to freenode? I'm afraid freenode doesn't like that.

Nope. Haven't been using VPN.

And I tried that SASL thing. So far, no luck.

Can you try it again as you were doing earlier before it happened?

Exactly as before.

It's getting late, so I'm gonna go to sleep. I'll try again tomorrow. Thanks for your help, qwed117.

My only other suggestion at this time is to email freenode, and say "I'm blocked because of DroneBL, even though no listing exists." Tell them your IP, and ask them as how to resolve the issue.
