If you're running the bot on Freenode with many players it may get kicked because of flooding "(Excess Flood)".
The solution is to increase the time between messages from supybot. To do that, identify for your bot (/msg botname identify <your_username> <bot_password>) and issue
config supybot.protocols.irc.throttleTime 2.0

config supybot.protocol.irc.throttleTime will set your throttleTime, and 320 is the value in seconds that needs to pass before supybot sends its next message. 2.0 is a value that works well for Freenode.
