I cannot connect, it says I’m G-lined: DNSBL Match

In order to prevent abuse (such as: flooding, mass advertising and spamming), IRC4Fun checks connecting users against DroneBL and EFnetRBL(Most IRC networks also check connecting users against these [and other] blacklist services to prevent abuse, and have done so since the early 2000’s.) 

Users connecting from IP addresses listed in either abuse prevention service will be automatically G-lined (banned from the network) for 24 hours.

How can I fix whatever the problem is, so I can connect?

The automated G-line on IRC4Fun will expire in 24 hours, however it will be automatically re-applied unless you request removal from either DroneBL or EFnetRBL.

  1. You will need to check whether you are listed in DroneBL or EFnetRBL and request removal. (The GLINE/QUIT message will indicate which DNS Blacklist you were matched in — however, you should check to ensure you are not listed in either or both.)
  2. Once you are no longer listed, you will be able to connect.
