Sometimes in IRC people paste text that you want to copy, such as:

[09:10] <Plasma> Hi there, can you copy this line!
[09:10] <Plasma> ... and this one

Currently you can select the entire lines of text to be copied to your clipboard.

It would be great if you could hold down a modifier key (such as shift) or perform a right-click instead of left-click drag, that would let you select 'Hi there...' and '... and this one' lines, without having to select the speaker's nickname and the message timestamp.

This would allow a 'clean copy' of the intended text the person sent, instead of having to clean it up manually afterwards.

This would also remove the need for 'pastebin' at times.
