It may not be immoral.  Companies running internal IRC networks are often 
interested in this feature from an 'information capture' point of view[1].

So I what I'm saying is there is thin wedge where this is legitimate ;)

Of course morality (and maybe legaility) will require that this is stated 
upfront.  I was asked about this recently by a company and recommended 
that they _not_ do it as not desirable for some corporate information to 
be transparently logged by a 3rd party (the sysadmins).

[1] I've also seen them like it due to a desire to check up on staff :(
