Thoughts on deleting the 3000+ message chat?

I tried digging through that and other threads at one point. I mostly saw nothing better than pirating sites. In my opinion, it's one thing to get around the nonsensical filters on school-owned or shared computers to view legal distribution sites. It's another to endanger computer network for stolen work that will likely be blocked the next time you visit, anyway.
What we as admins can do is rename topics to add warnings (like "WARNING: TOPIC MAY RETURN ERRORS: My school has everything blocked") -or- to add instructions ("DO NOT REPLY: My school has everything blocked") -or- to add categories (like "OLD CHAT: My school has everything blocked" vs. "CURRENT CHAT: unblocked websites and games").
Äänestys: Would you like admins to rename the topic in some way?
Äänestys: Do you think the thread with 3000+ messages needs heavier moderation?

Spam Fighters (they're a group) and the LibraryThing team tend to shut spammers down quickly, and the spam messages mostly show up in the LT introductory groups such Book Talk, not here. You might never see it.
