Enforcing protect op (+p) mode in new Q channels now
Following the recent spate of "takeovers" with stolen accounts Q has been changed to set the +p (protect op) chanflag in every newly added Q channel. With +p (/msg Q chanflags #chan +p) set, Q will prevent people with +o flag from being deoped but it WILL NOT prevent them from being kicked/banned. There are good scripts for mIRC or other IRC clients which will just do that though.
We advise every channel master or owner to set +p in their channel, make their mates use good (!) Q passwords and to install a good channel protection script.
