This is not possible to do in a guaranteed manner, because a user is always
able to install a pidgin source or binary under their home directory and use
that and log the chats to their hearts' contents. One measure you can try,
which, like I said, would not be too hard to overcome, is to install a version
of Pidgin that was patched (see
) to have this functionality disabled. But why do you need this?
