IRC glossary: mask
Valinor / IRC Glossary / mask
When someone joins a channel, you will sometimes see their address written out as firstname.lastname@example.org, for example. A mask is a pattern that will match this. You use a mask when you ban someone from a channel, so that, for example, banning *!email@example.com would ban anyone using that username on that machine.
