Hi there,

I'm using public server As many IRC networks also allow 'root' as a normal nick name, I think it's not a good idea to /msg root .... the login command. To say it in the channel also isn't a that good idea although most networks allow &channels

To secure logging in (i.e. also auto-logins thru scripts), the login procedure should be moved to root@…, /nickserv, /authserv or something else.

root commands can also be sent to the nickname NickServ. Also, you can use the raw NICKSERV or NS commands to send stuff to root.

Enough possibilities. No need for yet another one. :-)
