 +[[load]] nopaste
 +[[set]] nopaste ON
 +[[set]] nopaste OFF
 +This script adds the [[set]] NOPASTE variable. ​ When you [[set]] it on,
 +it keeps you from flooding your current target by (accidentally) pasting
 +text to your client screen. ​ When you [[set]] it off, this protection
 +is disabled. ​ The default value is OFF.
 +The script works by computing the average amount of time it took for you
 +to "​type"​ the characters at the input prompt. ​ If you "​type"​ at a rate 
 +greater than 400 characters per second, the client assumes you have 
 +(accidentally) pasted something, and prohibits you from sending anything
 +to the current target until your typing speed falls below 400 cps.  This
 +means that the first line of any paste will sneak through, but the second
 +and subsequent lines will be suppressed.
 +The nopaste protection does not apply to commands: you can paste commands
 +(that start with /) and they will be executed normally. ​ The protection
 +is only to keep you from flooding irc.
 +The script uses [[on input]] and so may conflict with other scripts that
 +also use [[on input]]
