About /shitlist

if you've read Cory Doctorow's Eastern Standard Tribe, you might remember "trepan" using /shitlist in his IRC client. Or you might not. And if you haven't read it, go read it.

Anyway, /ignore is nice, but it gets confusing sometimes because you have to piece together the holes in the conversation. /shitlist solves that. Example (from EST):

Trepan: /shitlist Gink-Go
##Gink-Go added to Trepan's shitlist.
Use '/unshit Gink-Go' to see messages again
Gink-Go: <shitlisted/>


Inspired by nivex6's beginning work on it, I finished up a set of specially-crafted aliases for irssi that use the trigger.pl plugin to implement shitlist like so:

11:59 -!- annoyingbastard [n=user@host] has joined #frijole-test
12:00 < annoyingbastard> im so annoying
12:00 < annoyingbastard> blah blah blah
12:00 < annoyingbastard> !list
12:00 < annoyingbastard> wtf no warez?
12:00 [notice(#frijole-test)] annoyingbastard added to frijole's shitlist
12:00 < annoyingbastard> [shitlisted]
12:00 < annoyingbastard> [shitlisted]
12:00 -!- annoyingbastard [n=user@host] has left #frijole-test ["fucker..."]


here's the instructions.

What's wrong with /ignore ?

you can't follow the thread

(Link)
If the person you're ignoring engages others in conversation, you only get half the conversation and don't know how much of it is responses to the ignored party. If you get half a phone conversation, at least you can see that the person is talking on the phone.

With /shitlist you get to see when the shitlisted party speaks, but lines are replaced with [shitlist] so you don't actually have to read what (s)he says.

Also, if you read the actual full example in EST, you'll see that publicly notifying people that you've shitlisted somebody can prompt the shitlisted person to leave if enough people do it.

the downside of ignore is it makes it harder to follow converstaions, since one of the parties is completely hidden from view.

at least this way instead of:

< 1> wtf?
< 1> gtfo asshole
< 2> this isn't a warez channel


you get:

< 0> [shitlisted]
< 1> wtf?
< 1> gtfo asshole
< 2> this isn't a warez channel


kind of thing... *shrug*

it's a good idea with a poor implementation

(Link)
The /shitlist plugin caused quite a bit of trouble on irc today due to its behavior of spamming the channel with a /notify everytime you /shitlist or /unshit. If it didn't do the notify, I think it would be great. Otherwise it is quite obnoxious.

I made a similar thing a while ago, except that it replaced [shitlisted] thingie with random quotes from classic finnish movies (Raid, Katsastus, Calamari Union). It was hilariuos for few days.

Possible to implement through Pidgin

(Link)
Pigin has some irssi functionality:
http://plugins.guifications.org/trac/wiki/irssi

Is it possible to implement this script?
