> I disagree.   This thread is about an IRC replacement, not about a forum replacement . It is inherently for discussions of a transient nature whose history need not be preserved.  Like "Hey @rengolin, what's the status of bug N that you were looking at?"  Even idle chit-chat and banter.  Exactly the kinds of discussions that preserving history is not useful for.

This thread is for both.

That paragraph was about the forum replacement.

I agree preserving history of chats aren't useful.
