Summary0003884: ./Config could be more verbose with explaining the questions
Description./Config includes a question about an 'anti-spoofing' option, but this option hardly explains itself

Rather than being about anti-spoofing, it blocks http get/post proxies.

Steps To ReproduceAsked during every ./Config
Additional InformationJust happened to find a copy of UnrealIRCd on a server with anti-spoof disabled without any reason.

When asking the admin, he told me he turned it off because he had trouble connecting and turned it off during solving this problem.

We could add some hints to this very question, e.g. that it effectively blocks HTTP GET/POST proxies by using a PING cookie.

Nobody would guess the meaning of this option just by the naming of 'anti-spoofing'.

IMHO Its description should encourage people to keep it enabled.
TagsNo tags attached.

I've tried suggesting the terminology "ping cookie" to inspircd's team, too, for having a common terminology on that feature - derived from the idea of tcp cookies ported onto osi level 8.

It appears to me that nospoof is still disabled by default in CVS

I eh didn't notice this bugreport (or forgot about it), until ohnobinki mentioned it today.

The description was updated a few months back, and now again with this browser/javascript POST issue. I also made it default to enabled during ./Config on *NIX (on Windows it was already on).
I think a big majority of the people will have it turned on now.
