in reply to warn for !/m(e|sg) in CB?

It is already a user option: If you want it, then use a client that does that for you. (I'm glad that the java chat clients allow me to disable this "command validation" feature.)

I don't think the HTML chatterbox will ever do this, even optionally. It is a long tradition and previous times it has been discussed there was much opposition to changing it.

I find it a very PMesque quirk that I appreciate even if newer members don't.

    Oh, come now. At least we're not talking about getting rid of stumbit.
    It would not surprise me if that particular phenomenon received its own NHD entry.
