Hayes implemented a "guard" ... they required a pause between the "+++"

they hadn't *completely* ripped off the Hayes command set ... they left
out the requirement for the pause. So, on lots of non-Hayes modems, you
could get them to hang up by just sending that string as data (or
including it as data in a ping packet).
And another cool trick (implemented by the software, not the modem), was
at the start of a line. <click> :-)
(Yes, I used to enjoy picking on DOS users, and still do.)
Yet another (and very old) one:
During IRC chat session, change your nick to COM1 (or COM2,3,4,
depending on which port the victim has the modem installed).
Then, ask him/her to send you a private message...
Used to work in mirc+Win95/98, if I remember well...
