I wasn't giving my opinion, I was sharing my experience that, just be-
cause some IRC channel has public logs, that everybody automatically
approves of complementing the logs using private logs gathered when the
normal logger was absent--and it is therefore wise to either ensure the
continuous presence of it, or explicitly ask for participants approval
when necessary.
