I would like my my fellow monks to consider /${username} be mapped to /msg ${username}. I have noticed many people (myself included) make this typo from time to time. Also as some have pointed out many new users attempt to use this syntax to affect a /me. Some might consider this saving them face.

Another thing to consider is mapping /msh and /msj to /msg. Another rather common typo.

It should be noted that this isn't really intended and shouldn't change much of anything in the CB per se exept reduce the # of untintentional messages. Although some might enjoy the occasional peek into the thoughts and conversations of others ;-)
