/*r'-kop/ ("irc" + "op", but with the, presumably intentional, alternate analysis "IRC" + "cop") Someone who is endowed with privileges on irc, not limited to a particular channel. These privileges include channel op privileges in any channel, but also notably include the ability to disconnect a user from the IRC network.

Ircops are generally people who are in charge of the IRC server at their particular site. Compare op.
