Usage: SQUIT <servername>
Sends a server quit to the named server.
This is an operator command and unfortunately if it is
messed up, it can effect MANY people so it's best that
one knows EXACTLY what they are doing when they squit
a server. A common mistake is to use a server mask
like if you are on some.server.edu and you typed
expecting to break off ircserver.iastate.edu it instead it finds
ircserver.et.tudelft.nl and squits it from it's uplink.
IF you're going to use a hostmask then make sure that
you supply enough of the name to keep from messing up
the net. There are more pitfalls, but you should read
the docs in the ircd source for those.
SQUIT SHOULD NEVER EVER BE USED FOR A PERSONAL VENDETA
It simply hurts the users.
