Note that the "kill" command will disconnect them, and they will be disallowed
from reconnecting for 1 minute.

The "deny" command will disallow them from connecting back in.

I usually "kill" someone, which allows you to send a message. I usuall say
something like, "stop it, or you will be denied access forever!" If they
re-connect and persist with there mis-behavior, I deny them. Our reflector is
G-Rated, and it states that clearly in the MOTD.
