In i can't ignore a bot with /ignore. How can I do it?

IRC is a protocol. Certain programs that use the IRC protocal have ignore features while others don't.

This is orthogonal. 'ignore' may or may not be part of the protocol. – Dogweather Jan 2 '14 at 6:15

Yes, just use the /ignore [user] command.

A bit of extra info, you can also do /ignore user@host or /ignore *@host which is useful if people change nicks

/ignore -c user*!@*

For Example:

/ignore -c XDCCBOT*!@* will ignore all users with XDCCBOT prefix. I.e.

The -c flag is to ignore messages from user sent to the Channel only, and you will still be able to recieve CTCP/DCC replies etc.

/ignore (botname) chan


/ignore (botname) all

The first ignores in channel, the second says in all situations.

/ignore usually works

I believe that you can do:

/ignore user
