/msh this

For all of you who enjoy /msh-ing neshura and embarrassing yourself and quite possibly her as well. You're gonna have to try a little harder now because you'll get tossed an error message if you type something like /undress me only to find /undress is not currently a command we choose to implement within the chatterbox. Update:That feature was implemented but then broke /me and I don't feel like fixing it right now... so /msh whoever you like.

    You mean /undress *used* to work?!?

      Hmmm - in irc people use either "7" (if they have european keyboard layouts), "?" (for english/american layouts) or " /" (note the leading space) if they want to "fake" a command.

    Oh - I always thought that the random /msg to /msh conversion was one of the more interesting features of the chatterbox :).

    NO!!!!

    I like the chatterbox's "/msh"-haha-fooled-you feature!

    Now where am I supposed to get my laughs?

    Did I miss something? The possible harrasment of neshura?

    Does /msg really turn into /msh randomly? or are these references typos or intentional? Just wondering whether to avoid private chatter that I would mind turning up public. TTFN.
