[development] Logging of IRC Channels?

A decision was made today by one of the ops of #drupal and
#drupal-support: that anyone *publicly* logging the channels
would be banned.
I'd like to get a communal response to this, however.
My generic opinion is:
1) anyone who believes any internet communication is private,
without prior warning (encryption, auth, etc.), is naive.
2) the #drupal-support channel is a large font of knowledge,
fixes, and help. not being able to search it, or use its
resources outside of real time, is a great loss.
3) that this should not be the decision of one person.
4) feelings that it would change the "mood" of the channel
is no different than being informed that a mailing list has
a moderator (or is archived) or that anything you post on
Drupal.org is also search-engine-able: you self-censor
yourself. IRC is no less "professional" or "private"
than any other medium.
