But you would think you could still enter the control panel. Like if Dave/Arun/Ace/Iverson got banned he would be able to unban himself.
Do you know what IRC is? I don't think it has a CP. Dave and Arun run this all, so they probably have backup admins or another way (root admin) to unban themselves. Ace, actually, I don't think has the power to do that. I may be wrong though.
