I have read over and over again that you cannot flood yourself replying to CTCP version. But how does mIRC react to a flood of ctcp version? Does it ignore it? Does it stack the replies into a send queue, regardless of the number of replies? ...

TIA

mIRC will only reply to a CTCP version once in 10 seconds.

~ Edit ~
This of course only applies to the internal version reply.
This does not apply to scripted, custom version replies.

I just tried it and it looks like it stacks them like you suggested.

Edit: I was getting responses no closer than 5 seconds apart.

OOOH ... very good point! I recieved custom replies within 5 seconds of eachother , but on 10 version requests recieved no more than 2 internal replies.
