Valinor / IRC Glossary / clone


A bot programmed to connect lots of times (sometimes several hundred connections all at once) can slow down the network or even break it. Cloning is not normally allowed on an IRC network that has any other users, so if you try it, expect to make yourself very unpopular. Most networks allow 3 or 4 connections from the same network address before they start investigating.
