Well, it wont block dcc chats..

However, the usual way of establishing a dcc-chat is thru ctcp..
(Or, more correctly, irc clients implementing dcc chat uses ctcp
commands to negotiate the direct-client-connection (dcc), and this would
be blocked)

Telnetting to your bot should remain unaffected tho..

Of course, you could always include some exception-clause in your
function to exclude the DCC ctcp-command, and maybe even the
psuedo-standard CHAT ctcp-command

(A simple way of testing could be to check wether the privmsg starts
with "\001DCC", or test if the whole text-argument starts with
"$botnick :\001DCC"... Probably a few more ways of checking this I suppose)
