ircII help - kick

Usage: KICK *|<channel> []

  Kicks specified user off a given channel. Only channel operators   are privileged to use this command. Channel operator privileges   can be given to other users of channel using:     mode <channel> +o   and taken away with:     mode <channel> -o   KICK * <user> is just like the first usage but it always specifies   the current channel. So     KICK * idiot   will kick 'idiot' off your current active channel.

  kick can be very effective if used in a combination with     mode #channel +i   and possibly     mode #channel +b.   First line of defense should be ignore and kick then then the   channel can be made invite only, and if all else fails a person   can be banned from the channel.     The <comment> is to supply some reason for the kick to the user   affected as well as to other people on your channel.

IMPORTANT NOTE:   Be careful with your use of KICK and MODE #channel -o   as they can throw the network permanently out of sync. This   generally occurs when two people are bickering about channel op   status and de-op each other. This generates 'Fake MODE' notices   which are an indication that something is wrong. The best way   to avoid this is to not use ON and MODE together.
