Syntax: GOSSIP  <message>
Syntax: CGOSSIP <message>
Syntax: SHOUT   <message>
Syntax: YELL    <message>

SHOUT sends a message to all awake players in the world.  To curb excessive
shouting, SHOUT imposes a three-second delay on the shouter.

GOSSIP and CGOSSIP are variants of SHOUT (without the delay).  '.' is a 
synonym for GOSSIP.

YELL sends a message to all awake players within your area.

Type a channel name by itself to turn it off.
Syntax: NOCHANNEL <character>
 NOEMOTE   <character>
 NOSHOUT   <character>
 NOTELL    <character>

Noemote, noshout, and NOTELL are used to muffle other characters, by
preventing them from emoting, shouting, and telling, respectively.
Characters WHO are noshout'ed or no'telled will also not receive those
forms of communication.

The NOCHANNEL command is similar, but more drastic. It prevents the victim
from using any of the channels (gossip, cgossip, Q/A, music) on the game.
Nochannels usually result from swearing or spamming on public channels.
