Description

Colloquy should warn before sending large pastes

Try selecting 50 files in the finder/xcode and clicking "enter" or command-o. They would both warn you "are you sure you want to open 50 files/windows"? I'm pretty sure Apple's Radar does the same. Unfortunately Mac apps are rather inconsistent about this, but IMO apps should warn before doing uncommon, destructive actions.

Pasting > 10 lines into a chatroom is "uncommon and destructive". If you wanted to get really fancy, you could have a button which offered to make a pastebin post for you. But that might be a bit over the top.

How I ran into this is that I thought I had a URL in my clipboard instead I had a 1000 line paste, which I accidentally dumped into #webkit this morning.

Furthermore, this got me kicked (I'm not surprised), which would add to the list of reasons why this is "uncommon and destructive".

MacDome? (n=eric@…) left the chat room. (Excess Flood)

Bah, actually neither Finder or Xcode show you a "are you sure?" dialog, I'm quite sure Radar.app does... then again, I'm also pretty sure I filed bugs against at least XCode to have it do this while I was working @ the big fruit.
