Does anyone ever encrypt their logs? When is the time to encrypt?

The only time I remember encrypting any logs is when I was brand new to the game. Now if I have something to say specifically to the CO, I will send an email.

I try to do it if I'm saying something in my log that would be more of a clue regarding where it is. For example, "I was almost a little too short for that one." But I admit I did more of that when I was newer to the game than I do now.

I've never understood the point of encrypting logs. Anything we see encrypted we're just dying to read anyway. Though, I don't judge those that do it.

Sometimes I encrypt other people's logs, especially if it's boring and repeated ad nauseam.

Ok, but what purpose does it serve?

Perhaps it's more interesting to look at than "TNLN SL TFTC" for the 730th time.

Of course, perhaps it wouldn't be more interesting after the 730th time.

If you're getting 730 TFTC logs on a cache perhaps that's all the cache deserves.
