A kill is the method in which an IRC OP causes a troublesome user to be removed from the server. Kills can be noticed by a message similar to this:

*** troublesome_nick quit ([] Local kill by IRC_OP_nick (optional message giving reason)) {{hm}}

Receiving one of these usually means that you are on the bad side of the IRC OPs of the server, although on some servers, but not, have IRC OPs that use kills in jest. It should be obvious if the kill was in jest or not though. In general, looking for one is a bad idea.

Further causing trouble on a server could lead to a K:line or other type of line that prevents access to the server.
