[10:20:42] <chipset> Set your console to #abc123: - (none)

bot and 1 user)

Version: 1.6.7.3 -- v1.6.7+argv (CVS)

On a 200+ botnet, I'm getting tired of seeing all these links and unlinks.
Tried to disable the console to show it, and found that I cannot. I'm stuck
with the extra scrole.

It seems that older bots send 'ct' commands along with unlinks. But, I also
noticed that the bot displays unlinks from newer bots, too. If that makes any
sense.

In other words, as long as older bots are on the net, we may never be able to
stop the link msgs. On the other hand, we may be able to reduce them.

Patch to fix console +b

I think this patch may fix it. It seems that the text was being sent to all
dcc chats instead of using putlog, cause the msgs didn't even show up in a log,
which seems odd to me.

This will not hide links/unlinks from bots directly linked to the bot you're
on. Only remote bots. I figure local bot msgs are important enough to be put
through -b.

Maybe a better option would be a flag to not show broadcasts.

BarkerJr?: This will not hide links/unlinks from bots directly linked to the

to be put through -b.

Who's to say what is important though? I think it should be pipped through the
b console regardless of it's importance. TCL Error's are important to me,
using console o, but not important to others ... so it's importance is relative
to the user ... the user should be able to define what is important and what
isn't (therefor the console flags).

Hmm.. what are we going to do about this one?

Patch that adds console +i for chatout() messages

I don't think changing chatout() to putlog() in a few places is the right way
to go about fixing this bug. I've created a patch that adds a console +i
setting specifically for chatout() botnet info.

Upping to 1.6.18.
