    The worst thing is that blocking such servers causes negative feedback from users. At the same time, these same servers sell contact databases to spammers. When adding a contact from a similar server, a person automatically enters the spam mailing list. Then people wonder how spammers know their XMPP ID.

    Do you have proof that those servers collect addresses and are not just abused from spammers for their dirty work?

  183. Martin

    Actually I only get spam to not existing jids. I don't know why, but I still report them as they might also have real users from other servers in their list.

    Ge0rG, Spammers wrote to me. They offered money to protect a spam account. They also offered money for the XMPP IDs contact database. They also offered spam protection. They said that they would not send spam to 404.city and from 404.city in exchange for protecting the spammer's account. I declined the offer of spammers, but some servers may be bribed by spammers.

  225. Ge0rG

    404.city: that's very interesting indeed. It puts a response I've received recently into a new light. Do you know of servers that accepted the deal?

  226. 404.city

    Ge0rG, >This is a very strong accusation. I hope you have proof of that. I have no evidence of this, but if the server protects spammers, the spammer probably bribed the owner of the server.

  227. Ge0rG

    Also what's the value in your user database if they promise not to spam you?

    >Also what's the value in your user database if they promise not to spam you? In the router, the contacts of other servers. They buy contacts of interlocutors. This explains why XMPP IDs that are not publicly placed get into the spam database.

  238. pep.

    And you buy into this?

  239. 404.city

    >Sell it to other spammers who will spam you :P Spammers conflict with each other spamers. There is information that they order flood attacks against competing spammers.

  240. ibikk has joined

  241. 404.city

    > ‎pep.‎: And you buy into this? I refused to sell the any database to these spammers.

    ("Buy into" here was meant as "believe", not literally buying)

  244. 404.city

    I will explain the structure of the work of spammers.

  245. 404.city

    The spammers are located in Russia. This makes it impossible for them to be arrested by European intelligence services.

  246. 404.city

    I think the intelligence services already have enough information about them.

  247. Ge0rG

    What if we write a bot that registers random account names at different IBR servers and tracks incoming spam.

    Even on the same server

  276. Ge0rG

    jonas’: how many outgoing c2s connections can aioxmpp handle?

  277. jonas’

    Ge0rG, it depends

  278. jonas’

    there is no technical limit

  279. jonas’

    the only limit will be your resources

  280. Ge0rG

    jonas’: how hard would it be to hack something together that does IBR on a list of servers and stays logged in with a non-negative presence?

  292. Licaon_Kter

  293. Ge0rG

    There also used to be a promo video of a spam software showing off their parallel-connection tool

  294. Ge0rG
