Yes, I can. However, that doesn't mean everyone will follow.

Freenode itself. Infact, I saw several Tor users be banned personally. Ask

Yes, he isn't interested in any other solution (such as letting channels 
themselves decide who is wanted or not).

A small botnet was bothering some of the larger channels. He says the ban is 
temporary, but he keeps re-enabling the ban when the botnet shows up.
