 duration: a parameter type used for ban durations. It is a duration in seconds.
 A value of 0 means a permanent ban.
 
-propagation: to which other servers the command is sent. For all commands
-with a hunted parameter, the propagation is determined by that, and not
-otherwise specified. Propagation broadcast means the command is sent to all
-servers. Propagation one-to-one means the command is only sent to the target
-or the server the target is on. Propagation none means the command is never
-sent to another server if it is received. For some other commands, the
-propagation depends on the parameters and is described in text.
