-{Citizen}- Abdalan: I like the mouseover on todays xkcd
-{Citizen}- Rosuav grins at Abdalan
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Abs, 20060324 you discussed the possibility of your
            character receivin email spam
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: dude
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: that's fucking creepy
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Yeah, elves getting email spam and spending their
            valuable Orb on it
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: I have a memory like a sieve Ros, what'd I say?
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Abdalan [trivia] I wish I could e-mail text to Abdalan
            :-) But then he'd end up with offers for penis enhancement, and
            he's an elf so he'd probably spend valuable Orb on it
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: Seriously
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: That's creepy
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: I wasn't joking
-{Citizen}- Rosuav nods at Leshrak
-{Citizen}- Saorise: He missed your meaning Leshrak.
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: So you acknowledge that you're being creepy and
            willfully continuing to be creepy?
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Yeah, the notion of elves getting email mail-order
-{Citizen}- Maqtet laughs
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: No, I think what Abs said was creepy.
-{Citizen}- Saorise: He is not talking about that Rosuav. It is that you
            log everything.
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: No. I mean you saving everything everyone says ever,
            archiving it and bringing it up 3 years later
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: I know Sao
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: And Leshrak, I don't save _everything_
-{Citizen}- Saorise: It is a bit big-brother.
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Only the things that are worth saving.
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Somewhere Ari has my notes on childrearing from back
            around '01 or '02
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: See? Ari's just the same. If it's worth saving, he
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: He generally saves funny stuff
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Me too
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: He's also the administrator of the game, so saving
            things is necessary to cover future problems.
-{Citizen}- Tyisrisum: You save everything Rosuav. Not just the funny
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Like warning people that future pool will not be
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Uhh, I don't know that 'help tharun' is necessary to
            cover future problems, is it?
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: No, that's pretty hilarious though
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Yes, yes it is
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: And Tyis, no. Not everything. Just the stuff worth
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: A lott've folks do, frequently in their OOC comments
-{Citizen}- Saorise: debatable
-{Citizen}- Tyisrisum: Yes, that's why you continually whip out random
            quotes from people. That generally aren't funny.
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Abs, was what I just quoted funny?
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Well shit, I guess I'll have to try harder
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: I thought so but apparently everyone is a critic
-{Citizen}- Rosuav nods at Abdalan
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Let's go be funny on trivia in future, Citizen's a
            tough audience
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Apparently it's reserved for only posting other people
            being funny online
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: Riight. Creep factor of 10. Rosuav logs what seems
            like -everything- obscure and random, and talks about it years
            and years after the fact. This happens frequently. Creepy.
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: I've said my piece, and am letting it go.
-{Citizen}- Rosuav watches Leshrak's piece, having been let go, fall to the
            ground and shatter into a million pieces... err, no xkcd
-{Citizen}- Levastire: Rosuav, the thing is that people feel like their
            privacy is being violated by having you log every utterance in
            every medium and then cross-reference it years later.  Do or
            don't do what you want with that, but it's a feeling shared by
            several.  People don't like having irrelevant chatter logged.
-{Citizen}- Lucinda: awwww
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Chatter in a public place has no expectation of
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Levastire, it's not a privacy consideration. This is a
            public channel.
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Especially not electronic chatter
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: And, no matter how many times I explain it, people
            don't seem to realise that I do not log everything.
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Broadcast in the clear, on lines from the NE to
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: NE?
-{Citizen}- Levastire: There absolutely is a privacy consideration.  Speech
            is not just about location, it's across time.  People expect
            their statements will be used for the purpose intended, not
            flung into the arbitrary future at your personal whimsy.
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Northeast
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Sorry, no. You can retrieve "recent" statements from
            'last', where "recent" is defined not by time but by quantity.
            And I'd say Ari has full logs going all the way back. Speech
            here is NOT time-based.
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: If its said on the net it might as well be said
-{Citizen}- Levastire: Listen, you clearly are deliberately tone-deaf to
            the norms that most people instinctively grasp on this logging
            matter.  You've logged for years over the protests of more than
            a few.  Nobody pretends this will make you stop.  I'm trying to
            briefly articulate why solidly 4 out of 5 people that learn
            you're logging everything you see react negatively.
-{Citizen}- Rosuav nods at Abdalan
-{Citizen}- Levastire: Privacy norms are time-based, Rosuav.  Speech is not
            just about where it is said, it is about when and in what
            context or medium.  That is why privacy concerns are
            implicated, despite this being a public channel.
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Who is the aggrieved party here? I'm the one he
            quoted, why do you insist on making a personal attack here?
-{Citizen}- Levastire: This isn't a personal attack.
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Lev, have you ever said anything verbally and then had
            people quote it behind your back? As soon as you've said
            something, it ceases to be in your control.
-{Citizen}- Saorise: People do not like every bit of their speech be it on
            a public channel or not being logged.
-{Citizen}- Levastire: If you're construing this as a personal attack
            rather than a polite attempt to explain why some people do not
            like what Rosuav did, you've seriously forgotten what a
            personal attack looks like.
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: No, it really is. You're trying to make someone feel
            guilty for something they've done that hasn't harmed anyone.
-{Citizen}- Levastire: I'm not trying to make anyone feel guilty about
            anything.  I am articulating the concerns about a practice.  I
            have flatly stated that I have no expectation he will desist.
            Rosuav appeared to not understand the objections.  I have now
            explained them, and that explanation is done.
-{Citizen}- Levastire: That having been said, what Rosuav does vis-a-vis
            logging is not against any rule, despite however uncomfortable
            it makes some individuals feel, so if he elects to do so, he is
            under the general aegis of legal conduct, and so be it.
-{Citizen}- Rosuav: Thank you Levastire. I do appreciate your polite,
            gentle, and kind way of making me feel that what I've done
            doesn't match up with your standards, which may well be shared
            by many other people. I do completely understand (and did
            completely understand) what you were saying; but I disagreed.
            And still disagree.
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: However your objection has been logged for future
-{Citizen}- Rosuav nods at Abdalan
-{Citizen}- Levastire: And, in this case, it's been contemplated
-{Citizen}- Levastire: So I'm sure we'll hear it repeated sometime without
            prompting or desire in the middle of 2011.
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: 20090417 1:31:57 EST
-{Citizen}- Saorise: Leshrak, 2 second ago.
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: We wouldn't need to, you'll bring it up again before
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: The next 26 times an obscure, irrelevant, timestamped
            quote is copied here..
-{Citizen}- Rosuav begs to differ - he usually only datestamps, not fully
-{Citizen}- Leshrak: Semantics
-{Citizen}- Abdalan: Like the scent of babystuff
-{Citizen}- Leshrak nods at Abdalan
