[Twisted-Python] implementing NAMES in IRC

First, I apologize if this is not the appropriate place for this.

I have a basic bot written as a mechanism for learning classes and
methods.  I think I've got methods down, but classes are kicking my butt.

As a personal exercise, I'm trying to implement a check in an IRC bot to
see if the person issuing a command has oper (@) status.  in IRC this is
done with the 'NAMES <#channel>' command.

Google gives me this:

My own research points me to this:

Now, is stackoverflow overriding that method or was it perhaps written
prior to the implementation of the irc.py portion I linked to?

My code is here.  I am attempting to parse the names list at line 110

I don't know if I should be using twisted/words/protocols/irc.py or

Can someone point me in the right direction as to what I need to do to grab
the list of names at that particular spot using Twisted's in methods?  If
it cannot be done with the Twisted's methods, am I to understand that's
what the StackOverflow post was doing?

Yes, I know the code is ugly.  I can clean it up after I understand what
I'm doing more fully.
