This module adds a channel list mode, +q, to act as a 'quiet' ban mode. Users matching a +q will be allowed to join the channel but unable to message or notice it.
Masks are accepted in a glob-matching style; nick!user@host.
why not an extban?
Some people prefer to have a mode for it instead of using extbans.
Also there's already a version of this that supplies an extban instead of a modeletter, m_muteban.
Added m_quietban for 2.0
This module adds +q style quiet bans for networks that don't use the 'owner' mode
Updated it slightly to make it throw an error with m_chanprotect.
i dont see why there is a need for duplicated functionality
I agree with @attilamolnar. We should avoid using modes where extbans are more suitable. Didn't notice this was extras, disregard my post.
That's why this is in the extras repo and not the main one.
