doublejoin <reply> Your IRC client is completing NickServ authentication after joining channels, which triggers a fake quit and rejoin to apply your cloak and increases channel noise. The best way to avoid this is to use SASL ( https://freenode.net…nswer/sasl ). Other options for automatic login exist (e.g. CertFP and server password) but sometimes complete after channel join. knome
