Valinor / IRC Glossary / mask


When someone joins a channel, you will sometimes see their address written out as nickname!, 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 *! would ban anyone using that username on that machine.
