Hear /me mistype

Just a small suggestion...

Could CB be altered to accept /pinkiguanas (where pinkiguanas is your username) as equal to /me?

Thank you for your girl scout cookie purchasing time.

PS: Tilly suggests patching /msh to jcwrens name... but that could be considered a little cruel. :)

    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.

    I couldn't count the number of times I typed /jeffa in the CB on my hands . . . eventually, I stopped doing that. Besides, if you're not double checking what you're 'saying', do you really need to 'say' it?

    I think vroom needs to implement a Chatterbox compiler that dumps the core and mails it to jcwren if it finds /msh instead of /msg, but that's just me.
