  • Messages are returned with the newest first.
  • Each returned message will contain id, nick, name, phone, time, and msg.
  • The id value of newest message can be passed in as since_id on subsequent queries to find only newer message.
  • See Anybody.textmark_messages() which allows anybody to access the messages (so long as the TextMark's public flag publish_messages is set). Unlike this GroupLeader method, the Anybody version does not show phone#s.
