in thread proposal: implement /em to emote in the chatterbox

Dark Ages of Camelot used /em. I prefer /me (since you can actually read what you're typing and you'll get the right person for your verbs), but I recognize that some might be used to /em.

    Yeah, I don't see a problem with implementing it. I've seen enough different people type "/em" to realize that it must be a somewhat common meme in other circles.

      oh...that was just me mistyping something in the CB again ;-)

      Though on the other hand, how much more fun would it be if we made '/em' an alias to "/me makes a typo while saying that /me !*"? <grin>

    I must be getting old.
    I always thought 'em was was a colloquialism of them.

[oiskuu]: Ahem. Speaking of toxic injections.. Is there a simple way to inject into package a sub{} so that it captures a $variable that is declared package my?
[Corion]: oiskuu: No, which is why I hate package-scope lexicals
[marto]: yikes
[Corion]: Variables declared in a package should always be globals so that you can get at them from the outside
[oiskuu]: source filter to s/my/our/g :p
[robby_dobby]: oiskuu: Damn, you're evil.
[robby_dobby]: I was actually thinking of a source filter, you went ahead and voiced it!
[LanX]: not sure if I understand you but I think yes
[oiskuu]: Padwalker?
[LanX]: at least with PadWalker you can inspect the closure of a sub
