I've been using the web client demo a bit, and it's come to my attention that the majority of posts (if not all of them) with :) :( or :() are essentially filtered out. Only the first word of the message is shown, along with a colon appended to it.
I wasn't able to reproduce this one. Is the issue still occuring on your end ?
I had this problem awhile back. IIRC it was due to a bug in node-irc which has since been fixed.
Thanks for the update, cwc. Closing for now. Please re-open if issues persist with the latest node-irc.
