Well, my experience has been with MUCKs, where such a thing is accepted as a matter of
course. Our privacy statement in our policy states clearly that everything is logged, and the
server is as secure as a professional can make it. Frankly, when a complaint of harassment
comes along, it is alot easier to just dig out the logs, extract the relevant sections, and find out
what really *did* happen. In 6 years of admin-ing a MUCK, I saw this happen several times.
Thanks for the input.
