Some people in IRC channels I frequent have elected to use extremely common words for their nicks, including "a" and "me". I use
erc-hl-nicks, and was able to block those particular nicks from getting colored, but I would like to block them from being bolded as well. It seems it's ERC's default behavior to bold nicks when they are mentioned. See the attached screenshots, where "a" and "D" are highlighted in bold.
How can I indicate to ERC that those nicks should not be bolded or highlighted? I've played around with the
erc-fools list, but I can't get that to do anything, and every time I turn it on, it breaks nick coloring for most people.
