in reply to CB history - not an hour any more?

Other people suggested 24 hours to me, I think 4-6 hours is a comfortable number. I'm open to getting some stats on where an average comfort level is at.

I'd also like to note that in the future making a log of the chatter will be no harder than this:

nc perlmonks.org 53511 >> permanent_log

    But not everything that is easy to do is legal or moral. {grin}

    Sure, someone can do that, but let's agree that it's not public. That's all I'm asking.

      In this case, I don't think it matters if it's public. If it's that easy, the FBI could setup a system to run that command all the time and grep through the log as needed.

        Last time I checked, the FBI isn't allowed to do things we can't do either. If it's illegal in New Hampshire, it's illegal for the FBI in New Hampshire. Of course, the FBI could get a wiretap order from a judge in pursuit of a criminal matter, and then it's a different story entirely.

        All I'm saying is that I want us to agree that we don't make such logs public. Please stick to the point.

        They can do it even if it's not that easy.

        Come on, people. You say it in public, it's public.

        Please don't argue that the feds recording everything uttered in the cb is like if they had hidden microphones in the local bar. It's actually like you and your buddies having a very loud conversation in a recording studio. You know the risks when you speak. You've had plenty of forewarning.

        That being said -- I was comfortable with the 1-hour limit. I could be comfortable with 4-6 hours. 24 hours seems excessive to me.
