What is your log policy?

In this condition, I host outside France, and “forget” to log IPs. In the past I had /var/log mounted at a tmpfs, so a reboot or seizure of the hardware would erase the logs. That’s the best solution IMO, except for legal reasons. What’s your log policy?

BTW, the sentence “This is exactly what is happening no with your email…” should read “now with…”
