The network has channel services? If so why do you need an eggdrop to
manage the channel ops. I don't see the point in coding eggdrop to
support every single oddity network out there. If your bot is for
novelty purposes, and not channel management (which is what channel
services is for), then it doesn't even need ops.

On IRCNet +a stands for anonymous, and is only available on !channels.
People cannot see each other, everything what is said on cannel looks
like is send from somebody who have nick "anonymous".

I don't think that many people actually use this mode, since it's not
really useful for normal channels.
Maybe on other networks it have different meaning.
