in reply to / chatterbox errors

I was not here when they last tried out something like this, a la the current discussion in the CB, but I have to agree with many of the writers that it is just too funny when the errors get through. Also, there are times when people intentionally use errors for comidic effect.

Yes, it is possible (heck, even likely) that a mistyped /msg will cause hurt feelings. There are no doubt nodes here that have caused hurt feelings as well. Also, we should ask Jouke if he would like to have some sort of error checking in the CB (he knows why).

Just my $0.02.
Scott

Update: come to think of it, error checking wouldn't have helped Jouke anyway.
