I see. It is a problem Services introduced so it seemed appropriate for
Services to handle it :(

Dealing with the current individuals concerned over this issue, does not
make the problem go away. It merely creates a maintenance task each time
someone new uses it. Prevention seems better than cure in this, as in any
It seems odd that I can turn off Services' own ability to kill users in
various circumstances (NSForceNickChange), but must allow users the power
to use Services to kill another user off the network, especially when
Services is already "handling" the user depending on registration options.
A single 'if (has_identified_nick())' (or similar) on the target would seem
to be a suitable solution and is the one I will look into implementing.
