@CobaltVelvet You have that issue with any chat system.
It's just that most of the time, you run a "lightweight client" (to use bitcoin terminology) to connect to a "heavy client" hosted by someone else for "free".
There are ways to do that for IRC too, eg. IRCCloud, The Lounge, or Quassel.
@val okay but that's the worst argument and it's based on current irc limitations
you already have a server and there is no good reason not to merge the "heavy client" into it
that client does two things:
- temporarily store logs
- relay my connection
the server could effortlessly make the second need disappear with reasonable privacy, and very easily store some logs, even encrypted for one client
