The channels also need the +n mode set, to prevent nicks from sending direct messages into the channel even when those nicks are connected to the network but are not registered nor joined to the channel.
Channel modes can be set by channel operators ephemerally, but channel services can enforce certain modes, apparently, to make these modes more persistent.
Apparently in #sugar the 'n' mode has been blocked with ChanServ using SET MLOCK

I don't have deep enough experience with MLOCK to offer a definitive recipe for clearing that but ChanServ's output from the 'help set mlock' command offers what look to be several good examples.
I don't know if locking modes 'n' and 'r' are what we want now or not, but at the very least I think we need to have the '-n' mode lock cleared so that ops can set +n in the channel day-to-day.
