as i see it your script (if you have any) is sending some messages to "nickname" (dunno why) and if you send in some defined time many requests/messages then it is flooding, same as if you do /nickserv identify blabla 7 times in time of 1-2 seconds, therefore you will be killed, or in your case server blocks your sents (data) to "nickname" and puts it to qeue. but maybe i have missunderstund.... this is only my opinion

Thats what I thought it was, then I asked the person did I message you at all, the person replied "NO". I got more of these.

You may be infected with an advertising worm/virus/trojan/whatever they're being called this week. To confirm this, type /debug -p @debug and see exactly what your client is sending.

Hope that helps. smile

You should try to do a online virus scan, and you can do it here, many vorms/viruses disable your virus scanner.. so its not secure to just run a scanner on your computer, allways try to scan your computer with a online scanner 1 time/week.. hope this solve your problem..

---- edit -----
its not just porn urls that can infect your computer, you should never open any url spammed to you on a channel or msg if you dont know the person sending you the address..

I am doing this online virus scanner and i never click a link from anyone I dont know, mainly it is porn that worm viruses send. Also I done that DEBUG window, I added a timestamp to it thought. I have asked the people that i was meant to flood if they got any messages from me they said NO so it might the server itself.

its sended from everything you get.. e-mail/programs/java scripts and more.. and it can even come from a CD you got from a store, so allways scan your computer, you never know when you get infected, i got a virus from a brand new CD i got from a store.. so you arent secure even when you think you buy a virus free CD..

I finished scanning my PC with Trend Micro found no viruses or worms etc, and I haven't got any of those flood notices yet so I can't use the DEBUG.

Are you behind a psybnc or proxy? Are you receiving the message constantly or only after you connect?
