de- +‎ op

Verb[edit]

deop (third-person singular simple present deops, present participle deopping, simple past and past participle deopped)

  1. (transitive, Internet) To demote (an IRC operator) from operator status.
    • 1999, "Cory McWilliams", IRC Oddities (on newsgroup alt.irc)
      True, better clients will remember that a person had a voice before they were opped and will return the + when they are deopped, but that doesn't solve the problem. Suppose someone joins the room after the user is opped and before the user is deopped.
