Well, more like.. hmm, it disallows for instance *!?@*

I am not entirely sure the entire "disallow if already matching" system is such a good idea afterall. Discuss?

im assuming the ? is also matching *, (well it must be before it is blocking ip bans) - but wee cant use * in usernames anyway,

so it is possible to make it bypass the disallow if matchs system if the channel has that ban set? - its only seems to be this one ban so that that causes the block

(just thinking thou, wouldnt ?!*@* cause the same block? - ha fun)

I like the "disallow if already matching" system

We just need to find a way to make * > ?... perhaps replacing all the ?'s in the string with a character (such as 1) before matching them against existing bans?

In 3.2.x this was added by me in February 2008:
- So called 'smart' banning is now disabled by default, this means you can
  now set a ban on *!*@* and then later add one on *!*@* without
  any trouble. Previously the second one was rejected due to the former
  already matching it. To change it back edit the include/config.h setting

I *could* still allow this bugreport here so the case can be fixed when SOCALLEDSMARTBANNING is enabled, so hmm.. dunno.
I've no intention to fix it though (but a patch is always welcome, I guess ;p).
