if I create this alias:

/alias test /say $*; /say hi

when I run "/test asd asd" I get the following output

asd asd
hi asd asd

the arguments for /test are passed to each cmd of the alias, the output I would spect is

asd asd

other example, some of the aliases I tried to set in weechat, for manage chanserv.

/alias cs /msg chanserv
/alias csop /cs op $channel
/alias cskick /csop; /kick

If I use "/cskick troll" weechat instead of op me and kick troll, will op troll.

aliases like above are pretty common in channels with the policy to only use op when needed.
