The more I read in the thread, the less appropriate I think it is to
post whole conversation transcripts.

For example, I've had a couple telephone conversations with Alan. I
think he would feel his privacy was infringed if I were to post audio
recordings of those. Or even if he wouldn't, *I* certainly would. It's
not that either of us have anything to hide... but a telephone
conversation has a different tone than a list post (and sometimes goes
into side matters or small talk). Btw. it's hypothetical... I don't
record my telephone conversations, neither with Alan nor any one else
:-) (but maybe John Ashcroft does).

An IRC chat is a lot like a telephone conversation, as I perceive it.

Yours, David...
