proposal: implement /em to emote in the chatterbox
Which various other chat programs/sites?
Doesn't Xirc also do /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.
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>
