um .. I don't know what an "excess flood" is ...
Evidently you don't know what "excess flood" is.
Excess flood is:

1. Too many messages sent to the server (or channel) in too short a period of time.

2. Too many messages sent from the server to me in too short a period of time.

As I've said before .. I have (and occasionally use) several "other" IRC clients (dIRC, pIRCh, TurboIRC, ViRC, XiRCON, and even *gasp* MSChat). I can connect to the EXACT server, and join the EXACT channels and not get disconnected for "excess flood". I have NO scripts in my mirc 6.03 to cause any flood other than joining channels and getting this /Names list (which NONE of the other clients does). Now tell me once again how I'm an idiot and don't know what "excess flood" is (or some other excuse for you not to have an answer for me). If you don't have anything constructive to say, kindly do not respond as it only wastes my time.

But then again, what do I know ... I'm NoScRiPtR wink
