I'd have to agree, i encourage all my users to use /nickserv or /ns, however, the services help files keep telling them to use /msg nickserv.. maybe something like, MSG_NICKSERV, MSG_CHANSERV, etc in the config files, and in the help files, just a %s to signify where it would go.. means anyone can change it to say whatever they want :)
