Extended Bans

Some list modes, such as channel mode b (ban), take a <nick>!<user>@<host> mask as their parameter. These list modes can be extended to support alternate forms of matching and actions.

Acting

Acting extended bans allow restricting actions that users can perform. Such actions can include preventing a user from speaking in a channel (requires the muteban module) or changing their nickname (requires the nonicks module). Acting extended bans can also be stacked with matching extended bans (see below).

Matching

Matching extended bans allow matching against extended user attributes such as account name (requires the services_account module) or TLS (SSL) fingerprint (requires the sslmodes module).
