As both IRC clients and our network provide the tools to manage problematic users we advise to ignore/block users who are harassing you. If you have the ability to kick/ban you can also do this or speak to channel operators and ask them to take action.

It can be sometimes intimidating for users who are harassing others to see the people they are annoying get opped in channels, so establish a trust with operators and explain the situation and they may back off once they see you can remove them from the channel.

Don't abuse any trust given by channel operators in any channel they have helped you in else you could find yourself on the receiving end of a kick/ban also.
