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

I'd vote no if there was a vote. Filtering only on m wouldn't eliminate enough of the mistakes to make it worthwhile, and as tye said, its one of those quirks that makes PM feel more human, and well, more like a real monastery. Just as real monasteries had whispering galleries and secret passages so too does the monastery. Lets put it this way, often theres a lot more to a page than meets the eye. :-)

    Hmmm... then maybe we _should_ have the warning, but have the CB randomly publicize personal messages. That at least wouldn't disadvantage the speedtyping challenged among us... ;-)
