      Look into :help silence
      And/or use if statements. Here is my function:

      exe "normal! /^$\<CR>ma"
      if search("^> ---*$", "bw")
      if getline('.') =~ "--$"
      exe "normal! o ^ You have bad sig delimiter. Insert space after '--'.\<cr>"
      exe "normal! VGd'az\<cr>"

      search() dies gracefully when string is not detected.
