I like this. Lamentably, some of the documentation for this site is either not up-to-date, or squirreled away in some non-inuitive corner. It will be nice to have a central repository of good docs.

Incidentally, you appear to have mis-worded the first part of the explanation regarding using /msg and /tell.

For that, you can use the Chatterbox's "private chat" feature. To send a private note to someone, type "/msg" (or "/tell"), add a space, and then type what you want to say.
In a later example, you show how to use this correctly, but this explanation should mention that the victim's user name should appear immediately after the space that follows the /msg or /tell.

Yeah, I know, "Who would be stupid enough to not figure that out?"
