Today a ban was set on #wikimedia-bans that bans any user who is not
authenticated to the nickserv from joining a channel (
[BanList:#wikimedia-bans] $~a set by AlexZ on 10/01/16 09:19 AM ).
#wikimedia-bans is inherited by most Wikimedia channels so a lot of
people get banned messages. I tried poking the people mentioned at
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/IRC/Group_Contacts , but none of them
seem to be online. Can anyone help out here and fix this? Any idea why
we would have a ban like that in the first place? That's like blocking
logged out users from editing our projects.....
Ps. The work around is /mode #<your channel> -b $j:#wikimedia-bans
