I thought the generally-agreed-upon timelimit for publicly available CB logs is one hour. And now I see that diotalevi has extended this to 24 hours. Has there been a change in consensus?

The point of the CB is to talk to the people that happen to be around. I object to my conversations being recorded for the permanent record, given that such statements might be taken out of context. Yes, I have this as a personal beef, since my statements taken out of context during an interrogation helped make me a felon.

Please, let us confirm that the CB is ephemeral, and not to be recorded.
