I was banned from a Newnet irc.newnet.net server and I have NO idea why. I never cause any problems and just download Disney videos. Is there a way to contact anyone on this?

Thanks I am a newbie to this frown

Like thats not a contradiction--maybe they don't like people downloading copywrited material? It is steeling on many server's policies.

I was just curious about the network, so I tried it, and recieved this (below). It makes me think that it *wasn't* the identd causing the problem..? I don't really understand.


[14:44] -irc.firex.org- Looking up your hostname...
[14:44] -irc.firex.org- Found your hostname, cached
[14:44] -irc.firex.org- Checking Ident
[14:44] -irc.firex.org- Got Ident response
[14:44] Ping? Pong!
