Anti Parrot

About this module

The Intelligent Anti Parrot module prevents players using hacked clients to automatically copy ("parrot") other players chat messages. Also prevents the same (non-generic) message from be said by multiple players within a short time frame.
To bypass this module, op or the permission: "chatsentry.antiparrot.bypass" is required.

intelligent

Should anti parrot utilize extra intelligence algorithms? Keeping this on is highly recommended. Typically having this on extends compatibility to detect players using premium / smarter hacked clients.
