The PART comment

It is now possible to send an accompanying comment with a PART message. The client-server protocol syntax for this is:
PART <channel> :<comment>
  • The <comment> is not passed to clients when it also would not be allowed to send a public channel message to that channel, as is the case when the channel is moderated, or the when the parting user is banned.
  • Although JOIN/MSG/PART spamming can be done 1.5 times faster with this method, it is far more easier for clients to automatically detect that sort of spamming: A client should ignore the PART comment from anyone that is less then 2 minutes on the channel.
