Use robot.respond when you want the robot to respond directly to messages addressed to it, as in your me:@hubot help example and use robot.hear for any messages said in channel, as in your me:help example.

The following code would get the your above example working as-is:

module.exports = (robot) ->
  robot.hear /help/, (res) ->
    res.send "$%^$^"

The example code is based on the examples from the hearing and responding section of the Hubot basic scripting documentation.

This is a general Hubot scripting question, not specific to Slack, so I propose closing this issue.
