[font="Calibri,Arial"]I was trying to join IRC on my iPod a few minutes ago but couldn't. Am I having problems or is the IRC client site mibbit.com blocked from chat?[/font]

It's blocked because Mibbit has been used by numerous people in the past to get around bans, as Mibbit does not transfer your IP address but transfers its own IP address.

IIRC Blitzed's ircd puts a hash of the user's IP as the ident, so it's unnecessary to ban mibbit, just ban particular mibbit users. It might result in having to ban some users twice, but at least it wouldn't block all mibbit users.

It kind of sucks that Blitzed's ircd doesn't use the user's real host when connecting through mibbit. Many other networks do.
