As the person who started this, I suppose I should respond. I don't expect 
that what I say in #drupal-support is private, but it was disconcerting 
finding them posted up on the web with no warning. If it's going to be on 
the web, I'd like to know who's putting it up there and have some method of 
having things removed that I don't want posted. In this case, I was doing a 
Google search on my family website. It's not a top secret site or anything, 
but I do try to avoid having it in the search engines and I would prefer not 
having mention of it logged on the web.

I've got no problem with things being logged on peoples' personal computers. 
I would just prefer they not post the logs onto the web. I don't think it's 
an unreasonable thing to ask. And, yes, I realize that once something is 
said in IRC I can't stop it from getting out. But I think most people in the 
channel are reasonable enough to not use their logs in a way that upsets 
others if they are aware of it.
