nynorsk at strilen.net spake unto us the following wisdom:

This is a status that an IRC user can have in some channels on some
networks.  An operator is a user who has the power to perform various
administration tasks in a channel (chat room), and a half operator is
a user who has some of those powers, but not others.  There is
probably an idiomatic translation for this.

Hope that helps,

The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws [that have no remedy
for evils].  They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor
determined to commit crimes.
