Personally my view is that if you are going to write a publically accessable CB log that goes beyond a very short time you should provide users a means to opt out.

Observant folks will have noticed that on certain sites that monitor the CB there is no record or sight of me. This is because I asked the authors to opt me out.

So now im asking you. If you are mirroring the CB beyond an hour I humbly and formally request that you filter out any conversations from me.

Of course you dont have to do so, but I think its a matter of respect, both for me, and for the fact that this is a community and you cant just do whatever you want in one.

I realize there is a bit of a flaw in my logic, anyone that wants to can log everything, but the fact is that my bosses and a lot of folks bosses have neither the time nor the wherwithall to do so. However by _you_ making it easy for a boss to monitor a larger time slice you put peoples employment at risk and you also in my eyes compromise the utility of the CB. All of a sudden becuase you dont like an opt-out feature its far more risky to be in the CB at all.

And frankly diotalevi with all due respect, that is total BS. I have no intention of letting your feelings about a given feature let you compromise my job, and I think its a tad egotistical to compromise so many peoples jobs. If you want a full log with my stuff in it then keep it to yourself. If you are providing it publically I dont want anything of mine accessable past one hour.
