According to what I'm hearing, it's not. But I am unable to join a
server and test myself over the next couple of weeks (only access to old
laptop with GForce2go), so I can't say for sure.

In any case it would be nice to have an event for this so that we can
autokick people that start three votes within 30 seconds, or people that
kickvote admins :)
