Bans aren't (usually) set based on handle.  Rather they are based upon 
the reverse lookup of your IP address.  Handle bans are extremely easy 
to circumvent, whereas hostmask banning is harder to evade, and can 
make even more difficult by extending the wildcard mask.

That said, I am an op for #fedora.  What is your reverse IP lookup, and 
I can see if perhaps some other fool in your area caused a wide ban.
