UtoNet supports the basic bantypes in the form of: nick!user@host

Bans that match against IP addresses are also available (eg: *!*@128.*) and are also always checked.

Extended bantypes

Extended bans look like ~<prefix>:<mask,nick,etc>.

Prefix Ban Type Explanation
~q quiet People matching these bans can join but are unable to speak, unless they have +v or higher. E.g.: ~q:<nick>/<mask>
~n nickchange People matching these bans cannot change nicks, unless they have +v or higher. E.g.: ~n:<mask>/<nick>
~c channel If the user is in this channel then she or he is unable to join. E.g.: ~c:#flamers
~r realname If the Real Name of a person matches this then (s)he is unable to join. E.g.: ~r:*Bot*

the channel will automatically be set +i, the default action for the j floodtype.
