The term IRCop stands for IRC Operator -- not IRC Cop or mIRC Cop as some believe (it's important to make the distinction between IRC and mIRC since mIRC is a program used to access IRC; there are many other IRC clients besides mIRC). They may also be referred to as an oper.
IRCops are users who have access to commands that allow them to administrate their server or the network. They usually have more experience with IRC and the DALnet network than normal users, and are therefore qualified to deal with problematic situations. Please note that they are all volunteers and do not get paid for their work.
