Submission + - XKCD IRC Bot blocks duplicate comments (xkcd.com)

z@ph0d writes: "XKCD implemented a bot in one of their IRC channels that moderates the channel by muting duplicated comments. So far it has the last two years of logs to look through. From the blag post:

what if you were only allowed to say sentences that had never been said before, ever? A bot with access to the full channel logs could kick you out when you repeated something that had already been said. There would be no "all your base are belong to us", no "lol", no "asl", no "there are no girls on the internet". No "I know rite", no "hi everyone", no "morning sucks." Just thoughtful, full sentences.

And, a link to the code."
