Ilines

In order for our bouncer and shell account users to connect to other networks using our IPs, we must ask IRC opers for connection limit exemptions. This is because too many connections coming from the IP may look like spam. These exemptions are sometimes called ilines.

Here is a sample email:

Greetings,
