From Worms Knowledge Base
Web Snooper is a web based snooper, which allows chatting and possibly joining games in #AnythingGoes via a web browser.
It looks just like the chat lobby in the game. Its functionality is provided by a bot sitting in the channel, which relays messages between the web application and the actual WormNET channel. When a user is watching the channel using Web Snooper, other players in the channel don't know about his presence, unless he starts talking.
- sending private messages (whispers) from/to Web Snooper users isn't possible
