I co-own an irc network that uses an ircd based on undernet's, using the 
same X bot (gnuworld), and I have yet to see any log of deop/kick attempts 
against X by anyone, unless undernet uses a feature that's hidden or 
unavailable in their publicly-available ircd.  Still, trying to ban X 
probably is a bad thing....

As I've heard it, it's safe to register 1 username for 1 eggdrop for 
private use, but trying to use usernames on a bot-lending service with many 
bots (for example) is not allowed...  However, that didn't come from an 
official cservice rep, so I cannot prove if it's true or not.... :-/
