There is - and I believe this is the appropriate strategy for VSNS-PPS
classroom. If you go to diversity MOO (telnet 8888) and
connect as guest you will be told that the particular room you are in is
being permanently recorded (this is NOT true for other rooms).

The problem is important because it is easy to leave the recorder running
and people not to know. It's probably also valuable to have such
sessions in rooms which are either specifically designated for such (e.g.
'The recording room', ) or where there is clear statement of policy.

(The policy statement can be attached to the room description. It is
shown when entering and also on the 'look' command.)
