I've had the Registered Nickname of dackbig for some time. Then starting a few weeks ago (about) I kept getting the message Inappropriate Nickname (or something like that) and was not able to log on with that Registered Nickname. A few days ago I tried again and it said that it was being used. I did a /whois and this came up:
DaCKBiG is email@example.com
* Services Enforcer
dackbig End of /WHOIS list.
Note: This is EXACTLY how I used the caps when in chat (small a and i)
I have also gotten this message when the user doesn't seem to be online: (-NickServ- This nickname may not be used. Please choose another one.)
It appears that someone on the server side liked my nickname ..
Before I go off on a rant, I would like some input from a Mod.
