OK, so the bug is in the Dictionary, which shows both as optional. The
syntax given of
send message [ [to object] [in time [seconds | ticks | milliseconds]] ]
Makes either optional on it's own. It should be,
send message [ to object [in time [seconds | ticks | milliseconds]] ]
I read three times without finding in the text
If you specify a time, you must also specify an object.
(which is different than the given syntax, anyway).
You should be able to use the "to me" syntax if you are sending the message

I used "to this stack", which solved it, but that came from trial and error.
