[quote]Imo, he is requesting some help here, this means that he should gave the right information to us, but he never stated clearly how he store his protect list.
my protect list is stored in every possible way, which means, but is not limited to:
there may be also, 'channels' and 'network name or server address' value (but this is rare and I wouldn't like this to complicate matters)
I usualy use these aliases to add to my protect list:
/i protect -w $$1 $+ *!*@*
/d protect -w *!*@* $+ $$1
/l protect -w $+(*!*@,$$1,*)
/y protect -w $+(*,$$1,!*@*)
sorry for any inconvenience, I thought it was known that my protect list could be anything...
