Couldnt you just limit the amount of messages sent to the builder/editor 
to 10 or so, and only certain kind of messages?  I could just have 
it so all things are ignored but from what i do know it wouldnt be that hard 
to  implement this feature.  Or if people did or didnt want it i could 
have it player configurable for each individual with a set maximum not 
greater than a certain number so too much resources are used up (if it 
wouldnt use much resources please dont flame me for being stupid, i just 
assume it would start taking up a lot of memory if there was alot of 
messages). I also want to know if it would be possible to create similar 
ques for global channels, ie a player could type "remember gossip 10" and 
see the last 10 gossips.  I assume doing this for tells would take up a 
lot of memory, even if i only kept track of the last ten i would have to 
do so for each seperate player.  Well if anyone can tell me the best way 
i could go about doing this i would be very appreciative.  Trying to talk 
me out of it probably wont work :)
