Summary0006034: chanmode +f: support for action 'd' in floodtype 'm' (and maybe others)
DescriptionWhen trying to set /mode #chan +f [50m#d,20t#d]:10
it translates to [50m,20t#d]:10 even though 'd' is listed in /helpop chmodef as a valid option for 'm'

Ah, yeah, that's a documentation mistake for floodtype 'm'.

We could consider adding more action 'd' support, though, than just for floodtypes 't' and 'r'. It's basically a throttle at the specified value (X per Y), rather than taking an action after X per Y.
The downside of it is that it is less visible to everyone (including chanops) that things are being throttled/limited. So if your floodtype 'm' with action 'd' is too tight, the chanops may not notice that some messages are missing from users. That could be countered by sending a notice to the chanops about it, but that kinda contrasts with the silentless of the 'd' action.
We can think about it, though...

    Don't mention action 'd' in HELPOP CHMODEF for floodtype 'm', as this
    is not supported at the moment.

I thought about it more but I really have my doubts about this. As mentioned in my 1st comment this makes it less explicit that a flood is happening. Also, and more important, it would not really stop any flood, just limit its rate.

The drop action 'd' is supported for t and r though, which is fine I think. Then if the flood gets bad enough to trigger 'm' it takes usual action.

I think it's better to close this than to leave it open if i have doubts...
