    "Please do not repeat yourself in chat." .. a good idea, but needs tweaking.

    Several times, I've received the error message, "Please do not repeat yourself in chat.", when sending standard things that get repeated, like greetings.

    Eg.:
    Them->Me: HelllllooooOOoo!!!
    Me->Them: Hi

    Please do not repeat yourself in chat.
    Me->Them: Hello
    Please do not repeat yourself in chat.
    Me->Them: Hello!
    Please do not repeat yourself in chat.
    Me->Them: Howdy
    Please do not repeat yourself in chat.
    Them->Me: Fine. Ignore me then. Jerk!

    Also, it appears to check for matches against text that was sent days ago. I don't believe there is any practical reason to check that far back. Really, the only thing that needs to be checked is that the same Source isn't sending the same Destination the same Content rapidly. This should allow for sending different people the same message:


    Me->Guild Chat: I'll whisper the coords of the Double Top-Secret target.
    Me->PersonA: (123,456)
    Me->PersonB: (123,456)
    Me->PersonC: (123,456)


    (rest assured that's a randomly chosen, example coordinate. You have nothing to fear. There's no need to hide your resources.)
