Summary 0011505: when player is CONFused, still able to command allies where to go (with 't' key)
Description While I already had 3 summoned Ice Beasts, Erika went invisible and then CONFused me while she was at the edge of my LOS.
Using the Talk command ('t' key), I was able to have my allies 'R'etreat in her direction. A few moves later, while still CONFused, I was able to tell them to: 'F'ollow me
...leaving me with a wall of 3 Ice Beast between her and my player while waiting for the CONFused status to end.

Not precisely the same issue, but similar enough that I'm tagging it on here: the player is also capable of shouting orders to allies while silenced.

The behavior that players can give orders while silenced is intentional, and was introduced in ea7895c35

I've given some thought to giving orders to allies when silenced. Conceptually, I can see how this is possible through a military type of sign language ( although that isn't documented as such in the referenced commit ).

As for the CONFused status, I think it should be the opposite of silenced; you should be able to Shout (via: tt) but not give new orders to allies.

Other than that, the only minor problem I've found is on the Help's List of commands (via: ??) for the 't' key:
 t: tell allies (tt to shout)

it should state instead:
 t: order allies (tt to shout)

Tell is fine. Speak and tell in English usage do not refer only to vocalized language. They are used in the ASL (American Sign Language) in the usual way, for example, even when referring to entirely signed conversations.

Patch in PR 826 [^]

I agree with 'Tell' being acceptable for those whose mother tongue is English.
I'm just concerned that, intuitively, the 't' key seems to stand for talk and someone (as picky as me) will bring this up again in the future.

I could have also been more detailed by including: When pressing the 't' key, it already states:
 Orders for allies: a - attack a new target. ...

All good and cheers for the patch!

Thanks! Looking forward to testing it.

But it seems like there is some ~slowness~ with the Win trunk updates ( [^] as it's still stuck on:
  Last updated 2018-07-23, 0.22-a0-815-gb582571
for the last few days.

Should the 'Conf' status description via ?/T be updated?
If so, maybe Silence (Sil) could be updated at the same time to inform that it is still possible to order allies.
