<honeypea> oh!! and i guess you've taken care of the possibility of two madly looping mozbots in optional mode...? <honeypea> you can teach one a factoid that the other one answers and they go MAD :) <honeypea> i guess you know what i mean <imajes|wk> yes, that's fun <honeypea> talk about flooding a channel... <imajes|wk> kick, or kill -9 works <Hixie> as does "mozbot shutup please" <honeypea> oh no, but if an op isnt there <honeypea> and someone really WANTS to cause trouble <imajes|wk> Hixie: but kill -9 is more dramatic <Hixie> i'm not actually sure if there is loop protection <Hixie> but there is individual ignore protection <honeypea> teach one "x is <reply>y" and the other "y is <reply>x" <Hixie> so you can teach the bots which bots to ignore <honeypea> no, but i mean when you arent there and someone wants to cause trouble <honeypea> and two bots are there <honeypea> in other words they want to DoS the channel :) <Hixie> yeah, that's probably not catered for <honeypea> i dont think its fixed in infobots <Hixie> i'm not sure how to fix it <honeypea> but i know theres a patch floating around <Hixie> since bots don't know who's a bot <honeypea> something about remembering what it answered in a specific time frame <honeypea> and not doing it TOO much, i guess..? <Hixie> ah, that would be one way <honeypea> i guess <imajes|wk> Hixie: that's possible to fix, but only in a very provocative way.
Target Milestone: Future → Mozbot 2.10
Summary: Loop Protection → [mozbot.pl] Loop Protection
Basically, this would be a low-level general fix: Remember what has been said recently, and if anything reaches too high a count in too short a time, say something slightly different. e.g.: <mozbot> Hi. <mozbot> Hi. <mozbot> Hi. <mozbot> Hi. <mozbot> Hi. <mozbot> I was about to say "Hi." but I've said it too many times today so I'll just stop saying it for a bit.
