Let's just stick to the request please.
Absolutely - which I refused, and then I explained why.
I'll explain it a bit simpler, though.
In Nataliad's other thread, Nataliad wanted a script to change ident, change e-mail, and nick, different identity, on disconnect.
Logically, if we loaded clones, we don't want them to be the same ident or full name.
And if their hosts/address didn't match, then they aren't clones, but then, we also don't want them to all have a common ident do we?
Which is why Nataliad would logically request a script to detect on join if ($address($nick,2) == $address($me,2)) or a self-clone detecting script in order to know something went wrong.
Edit: And what else do we do when we include our reasonings for not helping? Why.. ask the receipient 'why' they want the script and or what they would use it for.
And I'm still not buying their reason(s).
