In order to increase security for our users and prevent illegal IRC activities such as spam and floods from spreading, ChatNet runs the blitzed open proxy monitor (BOPM) service. When a client connects to a ChatNet server, BOPM scans the client for open proxies and determines whether they are really open by using them to connect back to the server. Abused proxies are submitted to a open proxies database (DNSBL) maintained by the Blitzed IRC Network while a temporary or permanent (depending on the BOPM configuration) K-line is added for the client's host on the server. If you find yourself K-lined for using an open proxy, re-configure your proxy consulting the instructions and links provided in this page and visit the BOPM DNS blacklist to remove your host from the database.
