It has nothing to do with Sugar.  The channel is hosted on a free
service, FreeNode, which has some conditions of use, and these restrict
where connections can be made from.

You will need to resolve the issue causing you to be listed in dronebl
before you can connect to freenode.

You should determine why your IP address is listed.

If you are purchasing IP service from a company, you could ask them for
advice, but the situation is usually caused by someone else who used
your IP before you doing something particularly evil.
