Players should be careful what they ask for.  In this case, it was
group leaders who didn't like getting spammed with /sends begging to
join the group (usually by people at the bottom of their grouping
range, because of the way our XP sharing works).  It *is* just a
default, players can configure to send any chat messages to any pane
they like.
