#815 closed Defect (Fixed)

Whois spam while Get Info panel is open

Description

(pseudo-dupe of #814)

After attempting at least one DCC send request, Colloquy /whois-es the last person that was sent a DCC send request every ~30 seconds. This is not visible to ordinary users, but /whois notification is an oper-only usermode on some ircds (i.e. +W on unrealircd, see http://www.vulnscan.org/UnrealIrcd/unreal32docs.html#userchannelmodes). Obviously this has the possibility of irritating (and in some cases, has already irritated) opers due to the flood of /whois notification spam from anyone using Colloquy to send them a DCC send request.

as akempgen kindly pointed out to me, the bug only occurs when you do anything by right-clicking the name in the channel userlist, and not if you right-click the name in the chat itself and not in the userlist. It also is not specific to DCCs, as the same thing happens with the Get Info, etc.

  • Summary changed from Whois spam after DCC to Whois spam while Get Info panel is open

This only happens when the Get Info panel is left open. We do not WHOIS on DCC, I tested by dragging a file to the user in the sidebar and looking in the connection console.

@timothy, my apologies for not being more clearer, but the repetitive whois only occurs under one of the following:

  1. The user's name is selected from the userlist
  2. The user is sent a DCC send request by right-clicking the name in the sidebar, not dragging the file to the user or right-clicking their name in the chat
  3. The Get Info panel for the user is left open (regardless of how it was opened).

It doesn't happen if you send the DCC request some other way.

please note: this does also occur if you promote sb. to operator by ctrl-cklick in the sidebar.
