Yah, it's pretty silly. People have been logging IRC sessions and
putting them up on the web for over a decade. Nobody should have
any expectation of privacy on IRC.
Some organizations in many nations have been logging everything
possible anyway, and putting them in archives for ~ever. Strong
cryptography with trusted software is the only way to go now, and even
trusted software is a bit scary. And if you've upset the government
enough that a warrant is issued, any amount of their impressive
technology will completely side-step the cryptography anyway - e.g.
tempest emissions or a surprise seizure of belongings. I'd like to be
able to pretend that's only used for the "Bad guys".
