This script implements the historical set SUPPRESS_SERVER_MOTD variable. The default value is OFF.
When you set it to ON, the script makes its best attempt to not show you the server's Message Of The Day (MOTD) that it usually shows you when you connect. If you use motd later on to see the message, it will not be suppressed. Some servers go to great lengths to force you to see the motd, so the script may not always be successful.
When you set it to OFF, you will always see the MOTD.
The script uses on 372, 375, 376, and 377, and so may conflict with other scripts that may be trying to hide your motd.
