There are no admins monitoring our project channels however, those channels that are monitored have people kicked out on misbehavior.  The point being, "no logging" means freedom of thought for only the creative purposes; please do not take me any other way.

Fully agree... I don't see how enable logging should be a limitation
for freedom of thought. We've used it in Zaqar since day 0 and it's
bee of great help for all of us.

The logging does not remove the need of meetings where decisions and
more relevant/important topics are discussed.
