Not a bug, it just colours the text the color you specified. i.e. background.


What do you do at the end of the world? Are you busy? Will you save us?

At first I thought you were joking but I see now you're referring to the fact that highlighting the text no longer displays the text if the foreground and background colours are the same. Yeah, I would say this is a bug (or maybe a not so well thought out feature) and I think the foreground colour should be the opposite of the background colour if both colours are the same.

It's a bug or atleast an unpleasant new feature. This has been discussed in a prior bug report though here



Gone.

In the older versions, it appeared when you selected the text.


And that was an exemple.

Well it's not like you can't do anything about it... just copy the message and paste it in a mirc editbox or in Notepad.
