Since the status of being muted is an attribute of an individual
conference member, it should be announced separately to each user on
their channel. Even if there is a command to mute all, they should
still be told individually, rather than in a conference announcement.
Then if the command doesn't mute admins, it still works correctly,
without misleading anyone!
I have custom modifications to Meetme that work exactly like this.
Just my 2p
