I agree with this, but if somebody wanted info on other classes, they 
would most likely just create a cleric (or whatver) char and see 
then. If players knew more about the spells/skills of other classes, 
this would help them in deciding which people to group with, etc.

Well, some immortal commands seem to be almost magical and 
impossible, and explaining their function and use in the help files 
takes away from the magic(?) of it all, and players might have less 
respect for immortal powers. Or, as has happened a couple of times to 
me, certain mortals try and tell me how to run the mud.
eg 'This player is a prick, and he should be banned' or 'Ah, go on 
and set my xp up a bit, its not logged so nobody would know.'
Now, they wouldnt know some of this info unless they had read the 
help file, and in doing so, they annoy imms more. If u want your 
players to know all your imm commands, then fine, keep it the way it 
is in stock.
