NOTE: These modes are all changed by a channel operator using /mode #channel mode change(s).
The current channel mode settings can be retrieved by omitting the modes parameter
completely. Also, the ban list for a channel can be retrieved using just
/mode #channel +b with no ban mask(s) after it.
NOTE: Only six (6) modes changes, in any order you choose,
are allowed in one mode command.
