        This problem has been known for a while and there are fixes for it.
Although we have not gone through our database yet and done it for the user=
s,
we have told all of the users that by issuing the command:
         /MSG NickServ SET HIDE USERMASK ON
This fixes the bug where users can /MSG NickServ INFO <nickname> and get
"Last Seen hostmask:", and it also fixes the hsotname being shown in LIST
output.
        This problem was brought to our attention a few weeks ago, and
I believe it was you who did.  We made the solution clear to the users then
and will continue to do so.
