I hope you can still breathe if you don't post. :tongue:
I agree with r0ck0, we're not officially entitled to assume intentions and/or judge reasons of an user who asks for help with something that can be dangerous. At least, not here, which is related to mIRC. Since mIRC offers features that one could abuse, it's easy to find people abusing them, but not all of them do that.
Plus, we can't stop who does by hardening help. If people want help to end up abusing, they'll simply get it from the right people (the ones who already abuse) so it's really useless to harden up anything and it's also unfriendly.
That said, not helping this user is your decision and that's fine; if you think nobody should help this user, that's your opinion and that's fine. However, AFAIK, these are *not* part of an official behaviour here. Therefore, discussing about this issue here becomes off-topic, boring and useless, giving room to silly arguements, which are *always* bad.
Oops, this means I'm being off-topic, boring, useless and giving room to a silly arguement. And that's very true, but I wanted to say what I think about this once. I'm done. Back to the subject that matters..
Are you sure this only happens with mIRC? No other program? Couldn't it be any ISP's temporary problem or something like that?
