Moving yet another step in the battle against spambots, we have uncovered a dark, secret trick buried in their malicious code: 439!

A large number of spambots have a little trigger in them that says "If you get a 439 error {Changes Too Fast}, disconnect!" So now, upon joining, you'll get hit with a 439 error - even though you very likely didn't commit one. Yes, Botserv is LYING to your client.

Nonbot users shouldn't be affected, aside from possibly seeing the "Welcome to Nightstar Networks!" message, likely during netsplits, too. So when you see it, smile, and think about how many stupid spambots are being slapped into oblivion. ^_^
