I tried to find r200!*@* in the banlist without success... and the 
hyperlinks are automatically made by outlook when I copypaste the 
information, sorry for that...

I have actually seen this kind of ban before, but I cannot recall what
it was.

It said in your paste that the ban was global, what about locals?
.console #venezuela
.bans all
(will show you bans for #venezuela and globals)

See if you can find that r200!*@* ban somewhere there... I think that
has to be in it's memory somewhere...

The latter problem you had, I cannot say anything about... A script
interference maybe? I've never seen an eggdrop do .+ban's as HTML
hyperlinks, so I guess no other than a script problem. Might even cure
your other error too.
