As do I. Streaming, with a means of remote contribution, is better still.

This seems to be addressed to me, couched in terms of generality.

For the sake of clarity. I do not object to people's (including my
own) participation being public. I object to recording of
conversations that may potentially have *not* been contributions being
published, when the recordings themselves were made covertly. Had we
already a Note Well, I would have no complaint here.

I'll get off my soapbox if you'll get off yours.
