in reply to Hear /me mistype

I've often felt that the chatterbox should reject invalid commands as a user option, so both /msh and /pinkiguanas would return an error. Kind of like an IRC client.

"/msh unknown command"

    The javascript client does this. It also rejects lines that start with commands, so (bad example) "me too" would get you "me is a command words. Maybe you meant '/me'?" and it won't send the message.
