dude i dont know what cave you have been living in but there are probably 
more eggdrop on efnet than any other network, specifically BECAUSE it has no 
other way to maintain stability in a channel.  and 'against network policy'? 
maybe you better go to and read item numbers 8 
thru 10.

not only that, if you knew eggdrop history, eggdrop was BORN on efnet.
