  1. creep.im

    tom: creep.im is still being abused by spammers, due to it's easy in-band registration. so it's better to keep it in the spammer list, because unfortunately it belongs there now. it could change once we have ways/tools to effectively fight outbound spam. we have none now.

  2. Ellenor Malik

    creep.im: alternatively, disable in band registration

  3. Licaon_Kter

    Ellenor Malik: and do what?

  4. Martin

    Do spammers also use web registry forms?

  5. Kris

    Martin, there isn't really a standartized web-registration form and most utilize some sort of catpcha for it. so for now spammers seem to not use it

  6. octagon

    How does one implement that jabberSPAM list into ejabberd? And I thought mod_block_strangers was broken? Apologies if this is off topic for this channel
