KolSearch Exclusion sign now

We, the undersigned, ask that the chat bot "KolSearch ChatSearch" be banned from operating in Kingdom of Loathing chat channels, unless and until it adopts an "opt-in" policy as opposed to the current "opt-out" policy.

While we recognize the potential useful applications of this bot, there are many people who would not consent to their chat conversations being logged before they have an opportunity to give or withdraw their consent.

The problem with an opt-out exclusion policy means that users are not aware of their right to exclude themselves before their chat is logged. KolSearch has only advertised their presence on the Forums of Loathing, which not all players utilize every day. Additionally, (as of this writing,) the opt-out system (which uses the /baleet chat command) is not properly logging users who have requested exclusion, therefore continuing to log chat from users who have withdrawn consent.

Chat is intended as a real-time non-permanent form of communication. People may say things in chat that they do not intend to have archived in a publicly accessible form. We therefore ask that the rights of users be protected unless and until they provide their consent for this service to archive their conversations. This way, all users of this service have given their consent.

(We recognize that Asymmetric Publications has the right to log any and all activity that occurs on their servers for internal purposes, this petition does not object to that use.)
