it is also documented in the bantracker automatically, we swapped bots 
around a day or two ago so that #lubuntu bans get tracked with the others

The IRCC would rarely do that, unless we normally act as an op in the 
channel concerned anyway. The IRCC do deal with escalation issues when a 
user feels they have been unfairly treated, we would then try and 
resolve the issue to everyone's satisfaction, we don't just go removing

only #lubuntu ops can remove a ban in #lubuntu, though anyone on the ops 
team and IRCC can assist with mediating with users in the -ops channel 
the final decision to remove a ban would be made by any of the #lubuntu 
operators (or for whatever channel it was relating to)
