+q is a bizarre "half-ban" flag which doesn't appear in many
(any?) IRC newbie guides, confuses some software and used to
give inciting error messages on freenode like "the gods have
taken your voice away" (I have an unstable internet link today,
so I haven't checked now). Please don't use it on newcomers.
