Annoying nicks, Hula Dancers, and IRC--OH MY!

How can one change their supposedly annoying nick name in IRC via the Java Client at Elysiun.com “chatbox.” I’ve tried various ways but have found no resolve to this dilemma. A few hula dancers find my large and grotesque nick to be annoying to their lovely IRC eye candy. I don’t, however; maybe I’m just easy going, who knows? Anyway, I’d like to keep my forum name as it is but how could I change it for the irritable Hula Dancers that lurk and seek out annoying nicknames to ban?

Thanks.

use another irc client

I’d reccomend x-chat, others would reccomend mirc

the server is irc.freenode.net the channel is #blenderchat
