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
