very simple question ...(I hope), whenever I try to ping somebody on irc it (client, *****x, ircII, kvirc) tells me:
"your own modes prohibt you from doing this".
How do I "fix" this?

Thanks in advance

Hmmm... It sounds to me like you may have some problems with your setup/config of the irc client.

I'm not too familiar with the ones you described, but I would start there...

Let us know,

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

In any organization there will always be one person who knows what is going on. This person must be fired.

Thanks for sugestion ...I will look at those, first I tought it might
had something to do with /mode command but apperently it didn't.
I'll try confg file and I will let you know how it went...

btw. it's not just *****x, it's all of my irc clients that do that.
