lol i doubt highly u really realize what your saying the server has nothing to do with a ctcp unless its ignoreing it thru modes of some kind ...... if the one works the other would have to work ...... mirc sends commands thru ctcpreply whether u prefix it with any of the default mirc prefixes or not ....... when u send that ctcp your sending your time to the entire channel ..... try doing it with a specific user and see what happens maybe they have modified it so u cant send a ctcp to everyone in a channel as it will flood a room
