Does anyone have any tips or guides for dealing with abusive IRC admins? (Nothing related to Ubuntu)

don't annoy them

+1. It's their channel, and unless there is something illegal or against network poilcy there isn't much you can do. There are exceptions; Freenode can have group contacts for channels that control all channels named after it. For example, all #ubuntu-* channels ultimately are owned by the IRC council, even though it may not appear that way.

it's unfortunate that people who "own stuff" get to act like jerks just because they do, but that is the current way of the world.

edit: the dilemna is confused by one person's asterisks being the next person's best friend.

The only way I to deal with that is find another irc server.

It's his house, deal with it or go somewhere elese.
