A user should be able to disable/enable color strings in user chat.
Currently only the server admin has say in the matter.

Some users create annoying instant chat strings, for example
"0xffffff ANNOYING ", which shows
up as a white bar on screen. They can easily create three different
version of this, and use all three instant chats without getting spam
kicked.

Or possibly take out these extra spaces from user chat?

    It looks like sf took out all the spaces from the original summary. Maybe it
    will work here with some non-breaking spaces

    "0xfffffftext here"

    Last post worked, except sf put a random newline in it (seems to happen
    only when I post with safari).

    Sorry for multiple posts in a row (no edit button).

    I understand the problem. Would it not be better solved by
    extending the color code scheme so that the client can
    determine whether a code comes from the server or another
    client, and add the ability to filter based on that? Liberal
    servers could "vouch" for the clients' color codes by elevating
    them so they seem to come from the server.

    0xffffff is supposed to be 0x000000, sorry for the confusion.
