When executing hubot help my bot always gets kicked out on freenode.

hubot left the room (quit: Excess Flood).

It maxes out the buffer because the responses come too quickly. Is there a way to throttle this?

Currently, there is not. However, the node-irc module does provide a floodProtection option that we could bubble up as a HUBOT_IRC_FLOODPROTECT parameter.


It would be a welcome addition if you'd like to give it a shot.

@jgable I thought hubot support the flood protection by using HUBOT_IRC_UNFLOOD environment variable.

You're right, it is implemented already. That was easy.
