Ok i created this irc bot( finaly got it working ) but i have one problem... when i want to get a certain input let's say.. hey
then i want it to say you, but for some reason i have to send this PRIVMSG #coding hey
to get this PRIVMSG #h4ckerx :you

but i just want to get the word hey etc and make my bot say you with out me writing PRIVMSG #coding hey in the chan.. another thing is.. that if i was to kick my bot, the connection is still running.. like if i was to try to join again with the same bot name i will get an error( nick all ready in use ) any help?
