Incidentally, the logging of chat discussion as long as personal conversations are being held are a violation of Wikia's [http://www.wikia.com/Terms_of_Use Terms of Use] (bullets 5, 7 and 19). This is distinct from people volunteering personal information via editing and comments because you join chat with the expectation that nothing is logged. This is standard for most IRCs, and when you join chat there is no indication otherwise.
