Usage: IGNORE [<nick>] [-|+|^][<message type>] IGNORE [<user@host>] [-][<message type>] The standard form of IGNORE allows you to specify which type of messages you wish to ignore from a user. The message type parameter can be one of the following: MSGS All MSGs received NOTICES All NOTICEs received PUBLIC All normal channel conversation INVITES All INVITEs received WALLOPS All WALLOPS received NOTES All NOTEs received CTCP All CTCPs received CRAP Anything else ALL All of the above message types NONE No message types You can ignore by nickname or by specifying a userid@hostname format. Wildcards may be used in all formats. You can specify multiple types of messages to ignore on the command line. Preceeding a type with a - indicates removal of ignoring of that type of message. For example: IGNORE BigCheese MSGS INVITES ignores MSGs and INVITES from BigCheese. IGNORE *@*.cmu.edu ALL -NOTES ignores all types of messages except NOTES from anyone from CMU. You may also specify a + before any message type to cause messages of that type from that user to be displayed with the nickname highlighted. (See SET HIGHLIGHT_CHAR) For example: IGNORE *Cheese* +MSGS will cause all MSGs from anyone with Cheese in their nickname to appear with their nickname highlighted. IGNORE * +PUBLIC +NOTES will highlight all PUBLIC messages and NOTES received. The + has no effect with the user@host name format. If you specify a ^ before a message type, then messages from the matching nicknames will be displayed no matter what. This allows you to exclude certain nicknames from larger matching lists. For example: IGNORE * MSG IGNORE BigCheese ^MSG This will ignore private messages from everyone except BigCheese. All forms of IGNORE use the - to remove ignore attributes, and the type NONE will remove the user from the list completely. All forms of IGNORE will match against the nickname with the most true matching characters. What this means is if you have: IGNORE BigCheese MSGS IGNORE * +ALL Then MSG's from BigCheese will be ignored, and all other types of messages from BigCheese will be unaffected. All messages of all types from any other user will be highlighted.
