Is this possible? I've got a block of nicks ([EXAMPLE]* for example) I want to keep from being registered, but I still want people to be able to use them.

Using Anope 1.8.7 with UnrealIRCd 2.3.9

The only way that I would know it to be possible is to write a module that reads the nickname being registered and block the attempt if the users nickname matches the blocked nickname and throw a message to the client such as: This nickname is unable to be registered.

There is a really old module called ns_wildforbid that would do this. However, its an aged module and may or may not work with 1.8. Google can help you find the module source.
