unregged <reply> If you are sent to #ubuntu-unregged even though you are registered (if you aren't, see !register), it may be because your client tries to /join #ubuntu very quickly after you !identify or because you don't identify at all. See https://freenode.net…nswer/sasl for some tips on fixing this. nhandler
