LOL, ok, to remove he need to write .gf none, this shoud do it :)

to add/remove that line use .+chrec/.-chrec commands.
That line have some advantages, when is on, bot also keeps track when
that user list time was on given channel. And you could also use it as
mark that given user is user of that channel.
