in reply to /msh brainpan the whole world is reading this!

Think of it as vroom's way of helping you improve your typing, or to cause you to innovate a little software to make sure it doesn't happen.

Seriously, I'd rather not see it change. I have a... history... of some rather classic /msh's in the older days, and was an initial proponent of having it fixed. I've changed my mind. This node, (jcwren) RE: Bigger Chatterboxes?, still pretty well describes how I feel.

I think it adds a little spice around here, and keeps people on their toes. I'm of the opinion that part of what helps this site keep it's charm is it's little imperfections. How many other sites can you /msh at, press the stumbit button, or know that sexisgood?

    So can we make it an option in the user settings*? I agree with brainpan: this is one amusing PM oddity (and see this for how I feel about them) can be awkward at best, annoying at worst. If someone with strict chatterboxing (jabborwocking?) wants to "make a funny" he or she can just escape the command and get the intended effect. Of course, this means some poor sap has to code it, but that's not my problem! {eg}

    And shouldn't you escape that command with a backslash? I mean, after all, this is perlmonks...

    * I avoided the obligatory use strict 'Chatterbox'; joke. Or tried, at any rate.
