When connected to DALnet I get a lot of private messages from everywhere with reference to "Kolayweb.com". I understand that this is a script-virus message and the site is fake. The messages are very annying.
How can I protect my mIRCclient from receiving these messages? Can I block incoming messagelines containing certain text-strings e.g. "http://"?

I'm using mIRC 6.03

Use the following for halting private messages with kolayweb.com in it only:

Code:
On ^*:OPEN:?:*: if (kolayweb.com isin $strip($1-)) { halt }
For a more elaborate advertisement blocker, see this other thread.

Also, if you're on DALnet, you may consider using usermode +R which will block all messages from nicknames that have not been identified to. Read more about that at DALnet's Documentation Website.

Ahh, lovley! Many thanks!

Scripting, very nice. Just looked at the scripting section of the manual... I fear this means that I need to reserve time during chrismas for new discoveries! smile
