Information

Open proxies are not allowed to be used on any IRC.tl server.
When you connect to any of our servers, your connection will be scanned and logged for open (and potentially insecure) proxies. These scans are completely harmless and does only happen when you connect.

Your IP-address and host is also checked against various DNSBL databases to ensure that your connection is not made from a network that is known to be used in common attacks..

We strongly advise you not to give out any personal identifying information or passwords to anyone. IRC.tl Staff will NEVER ask you for your password.

All users must always follow international law, and the laws of their country.
