Are the in-game chat and games on WormNet monitored & recorded by anyone except by the player?

in-game chat is saved to the replay, and considering that game hosting is happening outside of irc servers, i doubt that it is monitored by anyone from outside

according to WormNET's motd, chats in all channels are monitored, tho idk if anyone is regularly enforcing that

Still, it would be more comforting to hear a reply from the developers or Team17 themselves. It would be unsettling e.g if people on HB & WormNAT2 would have their replays saved on additional hard drives.

Personally, I would prefer an option to opt out saved replays in the game.
