Hidden host

Changes your host to "authname.users.quakenet.org", where authname is your Q account name.

Usage: /MODE nickname +x

Users will see you quit and rejoin IRC with this new host. You are advised to set this mode before entering any channels for maximum security. Once this mode is set, it cannot be deactivated. To remove the hidden host you must reconnect to IRC, or "jump" your bouncer.
