Hi there,

  Just another random thought to throw into the mix - should a user be allowed to kick themself? Say I am logged into a room and my connection is lost and the usual failsafes don't work. Should I be allowed to enter the room with a different nickname and kick the first instance off? 

Regards,

  David
