Off the Record

Google Talk has this interesting “Off the Record” feature, which prevents a conversation from being saved on google’s servers. Unfortunately, this doesn’t prevent either party from highlighting and copying and pasting.

Like so:

Party1: So.
I just watched the lost episode with extra INCEST.
Sent at 4:59 PM on Friday
Party2: ah, that one
Party1: Well.
You are now off the record (from now on, chats with Party2 will not be saved in Party2’s Gmail account or yours) Learn more Cancel
Party2: Can you blame him?
This chat is no longer off the record
Party2: yea. Shes a total bitch
Party1: Totally.

Just a reminder that if you don’t want it on the internet, don’t put it on the internet.
