OK, that's another thing.

Naaaa, no way. A couple of questions:

1) You run some kind of transparent proxy?
2) If not, check if Tor is really disabled. Use ps in UNIX or the
Windows Taskmanager to check. Shut down Tor.
3) Check all your IRC-client's settings.

To be more precise:
4) What operating system are you using?
5) What IRC-Client are you using?

The error-message you're describing is hand-crafted for people who want
to use the Freenode-network with Tor. It wouldn't appear for any other
users (unless Freenode borked up their scanners).

By the way, the message "Closing Link: (Banned)" seems to
indicate that you're using some kind of proxy.

If you give us more details, we might be able to help.
