shall I stand up and take credit for that line?

I have to say, I agree with Morbus, that if you don't treat your  
online communications as being for public consumption you're being a  
bit naive. I've logged every IRC channel I've ever been in for  
several years, and at times have published stats and portions of logs  
publicly. I expect in IRC that others are doing the same.

Please don't create silly rules on my behalf :)
