#15303 new enhancement

Received CTCP requests are very annoying

Reported by: grawity Owned by: elb
Milestone: Component: IRC
Version: 2.10.6 Keywords:


When a Pidgin user receives a CTCP request over IRC, such as CTCP VERSION, it is shown in a rather annoying way -- as a private message to the user, which it isn't. This causes confusion, as some IRC networks use version checks when connecting.

In comparison, the XMPP equivalent, <iq/> for "jabber:iq:version", is not shown anywhere, only logged to the debug window.

The IRC plugin should do the same and suppress the notification when recognized CTCP requests are received.

(The reply to VERSION is already a generic "purple", so this shouldn't be a privacy issue. The XMPP plugin actually reveals more.)
