Valinor / IRC Glossary / ghost


Sometimes you will be disconnected (most often because of a netsplit) and will find when you reconnect that someone else seems to be using your nick. You may use the /whois command and find out it's really you: although you were disconnected, the IRC server hasn't noticed yet. In this case, you can use NickServ's ghost command to kill your "ghost".
