in reply to Kill [me]

You already does this...or are you wanting something different?

The problem is that this is syntactically backward. Ideally, me would refer back to the author of a post or whatever while you would refer to either the OP or the person being replied to - I vote for the latter. I don't know that it would be worth the time spent on the code changes though.

An easier solution might be to kill me and then make me the same as you?

On a personal note, the moral and theological implications of that last sentence makes my head hurt.

    You're mistaken. It's true that if you go to you's homenode, you get redirected to your own homenode (and only if you haven't disabled "javascript on homenodes" in your User Settings). But that has no effect on where /msg's get routed. If you send a /msg to you, it goes into you's inbox; it does not get forwarded into your own inbox.

    Update: the above is old history. As Anonymous Monk points out below, you is now a defunct, empty account.

    We're building the house of the future together.
      OK, I think I get what you're saying. I /msg'd you and my /msg showed up in CB as 'You said "Just a test to see where this goes." to you' but it did not show up in my inbox. I don't use CB though so I'm not sure I get the significance of this. Could you please explain?


      some time passed, you was stolen, now it has no javascript from before.
