    And just as similarly you can tell the client software not to respond to
    pings sent to a channel in cases such as this or in general or...

    If someone wants to monitor a channel using ircd or tcpdump or a sniffer
    from some specialist company and they do it right, you won't know about
    it nor will you be able to detect it.

    All that you will catch using the above techniques is amateurs who are
    playing around without being fully aware of what they're doing and the
    environment in which they're working.
