doublejoin <reply> Your IRC client is completing NickServ authentication after joining channels, which triggers a fake quit and rejoin to apply your cloak and increases channel noise. The best way to avoid this is to use SASL (https://libera.chat/guides/sasl). Other options for automatic login exist (e.g. CertFP and server password) but sometimes complete after channel join.
