  Unless I'm missing something (entirely possible): From your standpoint,
the ideal would be to hit a high enough rate that it makes real-time
analysis of content (by a human) impossible. By the time the service hit
that rate of chats, it will be nigh-unusable by people.  This is more or
less why chat channels (eg, IRC) were created in the first place.  And that
doesn't preclude outside observers from storing and correlating the chats.
