  293. jonas’ throughaway123, the room admin is not taking care of that?
  294. throughaway123 Room admin did respond well.
  295. jonas’ throughaway123, ok, thanks
  296. throughaway123 (It happend during their sleeping time. Next morning they got blocked)
  297. jonas’ at that stage I think escalation to the service operators is not necessary or helpful. especially with that coronavirus topic (as much as I despise conspiracy theories), I don’t think that a network-wide ban (deletion of the account) would be beneficial to anyone.

  302. jonas’ if the behaviour spreads to other places, that’s a different story obviously
  303. throughaway123 Why do you believe it's not helpful?
  304. patasca has joined
  305. jonas’ it is a slippery slope we need to be careful around
  306. hhu has joined
  307. jonas’ in the end, I run netiher of the involved servers and if the room admin is taking care of it, it’s also fine from the search.jabber.network perspective, so these are just my private ramblings anyway
  308. jonas’ and I need to attend to other things now :)
  309. millesimus has joined
  310. xorman has left
  311. jonas’ throughaway123, though, it may be useful if you posted screenshots or logs maybe of the specific things which took place, so that involved admins can make a better judgement
  312. DP has left
  313. schäfchen726 has joined
  314. throughaway123 Borrowing the slippery slope argument, keep in mind that the slippery slope argument is by itself often a slippery slope, following a bias that devalues the risk from remaining passive lower then thr risk from being active, without a rationale explanation. Do nothing because doing something has a risk too, is a slippery slope. Nevertheless I agree, that with power comes great responsibility.

  316. throughaway123 > throughaway123, though, it may be useful if you posted screenshots or logs maybe of the specific things which took place, so that involved admins can make a better judgement Oh, I thought the posts of the spammers are still publicly visable. They aren't?
  317. jonas’ throughaway123, it requires joining though, which one might not watn to
  318. Харпер has joined
  319. throughaway123 (Oh, ok. i guess that is due to the spam. )
  320. jonas’ (I personally left that room because it was too much to bear mentally, so I’d prefer not to join -- I can imagine that others might want to keep their contact with that topic as low as possible, too, so screenshots help :))

  330. throughaway123 (It's in german, don't know how helpfull that is)
  331. croax Anyway, to report this is spamming or not should only be reported by MUC admins. Why to escalade this here while we don't even know this is not in accordance with MUC policy or not. Disclaimer: I don't support these theories.
  332. croax Last pic is pretty clear but this is MUC admin business

  337. throughaway123 croax: 1. if someone spreads racist conspiracy theories I consider this to be a problem 2. if the MUC policy is against or in support of racist conspiracy theories is a different question. 3. It's not, and I said this already. The MUC is well moderated. 4. Why do you believe your input is of any use in that debate?
  338. hhu has left
  339. Ellenor Malik This is not where to escalate it, throughaway123. IM or mail the yax.im admins if you can't get a resolution from the MUC mods
  340. Menel has left
  341. throughaway123 creep.im admin responded with: I don't care.
  342. patasca has left
  343. croax throughaway123: what? Only saying this is not the place. There could be a murder we do not operate this scope of issue.
  344. Ge0rG throughaway123: https://yaxim.org/yax.im/tos/ covers what is legal and what is not legal on yax.im.
  345. Ellenor Malik throughaway123: The MUC is on yax.im, not creep.im
  346. jonas’ Ellenor Malik, the offender is not on yax.im though
  347. throughaway123 jonas’: correct! :-)
  348. croax MUC admin can block or report to authority.
  349. Харпер throughaway123, how do you know the JID of the spammers if you aren't admin of that muc?
  350. Ellenor Malik jonas’: The chat.* admin (usually = Jabber service admin) can revoke access to terrible people, at home and overseas.
  351. croax But this is under admin responsabiltiy. If admin need federation help, this is the right place. But as far as I understand, that's not the case (yet)
  352. hhu has joined
  353. Ellenor Malik so it's in-scope for Yax.
  354. croax But this is under admin responsabiltiy. If admin needs federation help, this is the right place. But as far as I understand, that's not the case (yet)
  355. throughaway123 > throughaway123, how do you know the JID of the spammers if you aren't admin of that muc? it's public soon as one shares a pic.
  356. Ellenor Malik Their rhs is.
  357. Ellenor Malik Bravo, you found a chat channel that's not well moderated. Cookie?
  358. xorman has joined

  363. throughaway123 Ok, here I have a question to fellow service operator: What is the correct process to limit the spread of racism, spammers, conspiracy theroies, sexism...?

  385. balabol.im has joined
  386. MattJ Every MUC and server admin has their own policies, so if you have specific problems, it's best to reach out to them directly

  397. MattJ The primary focus of this channel is for XMPP server operators to discuss with each other the XMPP network. This can be to resolve technical issues with federation, or share advice, tips and other relevant information about running a server.
  398. throughaway123 (Yes sorry, what was what I ment)

  402. jonas’ the XSF is currently in the process of establishing a CoC which will also apply to this venue I suppose.
  403. MattJ We don't exclude others from participating in such discussions, as long as discussion stays on this topic. In some cases we have muted non-operators for a while when it was necessary to keep the channel useful for its purpose.

  413. MattJ Oh, I see

To discuss how to deal with such issues as a network. So I'm confused what you mean with "xmpp nerwork".

  422. MattJ Primarily the technology, but no, not only. The tools already exist to, for example, block other servers, MUCs, etc. and also to contact service admins. You indicated this is not the kind of answer you wanted, though
  423. pintosesk an 'xmpp network' is just used to describe the public facing XMPP client-server infrastructure, no?
  424. DP has left
  425. MattJ It seems you want discussion of actual policies... however opinions will vary strongly (I know that for a fact), so we're unlikely to reach an agreement here
  426. dot.r has left
  427. MattJ Already there is mild disagreement about whether e.g. conspiracy theories should be blocked, and at what level they should be blocked. The thing about a decentralized network is that these disagreements are okay... we all have the power to choose what services we use and what MUCs we join
  428. throughaway123 > You indicated this is not the kind of answer you wanted, though They are fine and useful as answers, if they respect the cultural and social aspects that lead to the rise of [racism, sexism, conspiracy theories...]
  429. Ge0rG You can't solve social problems with technical means. This has been true since the invention of technology.
  430. MattJ For example, evidence I have read suggests that engaging with many conspiracy theorists is the recommended route over shutting them out (which just reinforces their belief that they are right)
  431. DP has joined
  432. MattJ But this is not the venue to really decide that, it's up to service and MUC admins to decide for themselves what policy they will follow
  433. throughaway123 > You can't solve social problems with technical means. This has been true since the invention of technology. Technolgy impacts social interactions. There's a reason that by the means of youtube and facebook a new rise of conspiracy theory and a new rise of facists can be observed.
  434. MattJ In a coronavirus news channel, I can totally see a ban on non-authoritative sources making sense, for example. A more informal discussion channel might prefer to engage such people instead.
  435. Bjarkan has joined
  436. Ge0rG throughaway123: well, you can make social problems worse with technical means, that's true.
  437. Mel has left
  438. pintosesk > opinions vary strongly I'd think this would be more the place to refine XMPP implementation as a whole or a specific policy one already has in mind, yeah. I'm not necessarily here to tell you what you ought to do, throughaway123, so much as give conjecture on how it might be well done. I suspect many here are of the same disposition, beyond kindly informing other hosts of spam sources and such *strictly* janitorial matters.

(I saw it being shared some time ago in some MUC, can't remember exactly. The assumption that engaging is more effective then shutting them down, is false, because it depends on the circumstances. If you want to push out professional trolling effort that aim to shift the overtone window (yes, facists and conspiracy ideologists educate themselves about such means of communication) you push them out, but engage with the rest, for example.

  500. pintosesk a bonus of such a module would be quick search of messages within a certain range, and if the keywords display near the body onscreen, one might even remember the simple keyword when looking back for a long ago message.
  501. pintosesk for rooms, it could display near the topic and orient discussion more strictly.
  502. pintosesk thoughts?
  503. Kris pintosesk, such specifc implementation topics can better be discussed in a general muc like chat@joinjabber.org or the specific server's mucs if you want to talk actual module creation
  504. throughaway123 (See, now people engage on how a XEP meeting my need could look like. Am I acting against the MUC rules if I engage with it...it's hell of a confusion to me)
  505. pintosesk hmm.
  506. Holger throughaway123: Issues/questions regarding the infrastructure itself ("why is s2s with jabber.org broken?", "how do I block jabber.org?") are on-topic. Issues/questions regarding the impact of infrastructure decisions on social things ("will blocking jabber.org result in a desired social outcome"?) are off-topic.
  507. pintosesk So this is purely a janitorial chat then.
  508. Kris server admin, yes
  509. MattJ Yes, discussions of policies are off-topic, and discussions of client UX are off-topic (this channel is not for client developers) and discussions of XEPs are generally off-topic (this room is not about general XMPP protocol development)
  510. Kris don't call them glorified janitors 😉

  554. MattJ throughaway123, yes, kinda. We're discussing the rules of the room... not really a better place to do that :)
  555. MattJ We had no problems when it was small and there were ~30 people here who just got along fine
  556. pintosesk growing pains?
  557. MattJ But nowadays we have many people, new people, and I think it has grown faster than the "community"
  558. croax There could be a MUC providing help for users on general XMPP service questions. But maintenance of federation and technical advices is not same subject to me.
  559. MattJ As I said, we're working on publishing some guidelines

  570. pintosesk This seems to be a maintenance and status discussions chat with select benefits to me.
  571. Ellenor Malik Mmm.
  572. pintosesk I can't say much more than that.
  573. MattJ Well it's clear that some people these days *expect* it to be that

  581. MattJ Yes, which is why I don't really like it
  582. MattJ I also think it's fine and valuable to have an open place where non-operators can reach operators
  583. MattJ But maybe most other operators don't feel that way
  584. jonas’ MattJ, I think making everyone happy is not going to work. So if anything, the room should be a place you (or whoever has that role, the XSF, ...) is happy owning with.
  585. jonas’ if most other operators disagree with that, someone can step up and improve on it, one way or another.
  586. Bjarkan has joined
  587. MattJ jonas’, well, I get complaints when I enforce strict on-topic discussions, I get complaints when I don't ban people immediately for being off-topic... I'm not sure how happy I'll ever get :)
  588. jonas’ though I don’t think that a "closed" group where at the same time all XMPP operator have access is especially useful.
  589. Ellenor Malik I consider myself to be among new service operators. I have less than 5 years' experience in this field.
  590. xorman has left
  591. DP has left
  592. pintosesk You don't have to ban people immediately, but drawing a clear line between on and off topic is best to make non regulars or different crowds at ease here.
  593. pintosesk Otherwise we can't tell if we're dancing on your head or not.
  594. Holger I could imagine (a) everyone being happy with having non-ops reaching out, (b) most being happy with occasional off-topic smalltalk, and (c) most being (very) unhappy with endless discussions on random political topics. Problem is a policy that takes care of (c) easily conflicts with (a) and (b).
  595. Харпер has joined
  596. MattJ Yes, (b) is the problem, because it used to be fine when it was not controversial discussions, but these days we get more and more controversial discussions coming up... and the only impartial way to deal with it is to ban the lot
  597. Ge0rG IMHO this place should be primarily for reaching out to server operators about technical issues. We have no technology to solve social issues and thus I'm fully okay with flagging them as off topic, and muting repeat offenders
  598. MattJ Otherwise we lose the real value of this room
  599. Ellenor Malik The fact I've not quit completely falls to a mixture of causes: the welcoming and apparently collegial nature of places like here, stubbornness after banishment from support chats, and an ideological interest in ensuring a future for the Jabber federation.
  600. pintosesk I think it's possible to resolve the conflict so long as nobody makes smalltalk with any intent or motive behind it.
  601. DP has joined
  602. MattJ pintosesk, but I don't want to be the judge of whether people have intent or motive... it just puts me in an awkward position
  603. pintosesk So just, 'if you want something from us, it better be about our servers and not us as people' would do I think

  609. Харпер has left
  610. MattJ I want to preserve what we had, which is what is in the topic... a place for server operators to discuss the network in a civil manner
  611. MattJ But I believe that is becoming increasingly impossible as the channel grows

  625. MattJ Ge0rG, sure, some people think so. Others don't :)
  626. pintosesk I don't think you're a bad fellow.
  627. jonas’ what bothers me most is that this is taking valuable time from MattJ :)
  628. MattJ and I know I'll never please everyone. But I don't really want server operators leaving because of whatever policies we decide upon here.
  629. MattJ Obviously some will, but it's mostly valuable if we can keep it useful for its original purpose
  630. MattJ I think the next step is to get that page up on xmpp.org, and then we have some concrete points on record that we can agree to and/or iterate upon
  631. Ge0rG MattJ: if the goal of this place is to have server operators available for civil discourse, you should weigh the feedback from them higher, or you'll end up without them
  632. pintosesk I don't think anything or one of value will leave is you say 'no ad hominems or unsolicited requests for personal reform'.

  1384. tom did anybody happen to catch the ip address of that one?
  1385. jonas’ I think so.
  1386. tom it happened on my server too, but i don't log such information
  1387. tom jonas’: did they use the anonymous logon componet?
  1388. jonas’ yes
  1389. Харпер s2s discloses IP of users?
  1390. tom no
  1391. tom anonymous logon only works on local services
  1392. jonas’ Харпер, no, this was someone abusing anon.xmpp.org
  1393. jonas’ so the IP address was locally available
  1394. tom nice, didn't know xmpp.org had anon services
  1395. tom too bad someone's abusing that though
  1396. tom it happens
  1397. tom jonas’: can you please share the ip with me so i can prevent that ip from using my anon as well
  1398. riyas has left
  1399. jonas’ no
  1400. jonas’ well, I probably could, I realize, because I’m in iteam, but the number I saw elsewhere indicated a Tor exit node.
  1401. jonas’ (of course)
  1402. jonas’ so it’s not gonna help anyway.
  1403. tom oh ok
  1404. tom well it does help to temporarily block those as their abused
  1405. jonas’ I expect them to switch exit nodes for each attempt
  1406. tom that way your not blocking tor, but just degrading service enough until the spammer stops
  1407. jonas’ if they go as far as using Tor and the anon service fo rthis
  1408. tom yeah but you can't choose your exit node. so the more you block temporarily the less likely and harder it gets to spam
  1409. Харпер blocking a single tor exit is silly
  1410. tom when the spam waves stops service levels return to normal
  1411. jonas’ tom, seems like a lot of resources wasted on maintaining a list of IP addresses if you could also just use a Tor-blocking RBL for a while :)
  1412. tom security is just a game of making it harder than the bad guy wants to put effort to do
  1413. tom no i don't reccomend using a tor rbl
  1414. tom also
  1415. tom this should be automated
  1416. jonas’ how? :)
  1417. tom you don't want to completely block tor
  1418. Харпер https://iplists.firehol.org/?ipset=firehol_anonymous
  1419. tom jonas’: with something like fail2ban to manage ttls
  1420. jonas’ uhh, interesting
  1421. schäfchen726 has left
  1422. jonas’ that would require feeding the fact that a message was retracted by an admin (or that a ban was placed on the IP via XMPP) into fail2ban
  1423. tom treat it like a spam score when doing email filtering
  1424. Харпер if you want to allow tor, just make an onion and require an account
  1425. jonas’ but then you’re still faced with lots of abuse you could’ve blocked by blocking the entirety Tor for a while. it’s trade-offs all the way down.
  1426. tom Харпер: what difference does having an onion make?
  1427. jonas’ tom, accountability, because the user is authenticated
  1428. tom i don't understand
  1429. tom it's still encrypted
  1430. tom you just added another layer of encryption on top of the tls
  1431. Харпер what does encryption have to do with anything?
  1432. jonas’ current situation: user -> Tor --c2s-> anon.xmpp.org --s2s-> muc.xmpp.org; bans only work based on IP addresses. proposed situation: user --c2s-> whatever.onion XMPP server --s2s-> muc.xmpp.org; bans work based on the XMPP account (which is presumably harder to change than IP addresess, and if the server operator is not acting on the abuse, we can block the entire whatever.onion)
  1433. tom what difference does saslanon and saslanon+onion make
  1434. tom or i mean
  1435. Харпер what jonas’ said
  1436. jonas’ tom, onion+non-anon sasl was the proposal
  1437. tom saslanon+torexit and saslanon+onion
  1438. tom your hosting both whatever.onion and muc.xmpp.org
  1439. jonas’ no
  1440. tom outsourcing the problem isn't fixing the problem
  1441. tom and there's still an actual need for anonymous logon
  1442. jonas’ yes, but that could then be limited to non-tor users
  1443. jonas’ this is similar to what IRC networks have been doing
  1444. tom defeats the whole purposes of anonymity
  1445. jonas’ no
  1446. jonas’ it defeats some purposes, but not all of them
  1447. tom breaks things for tor users
  1448. Харпер how?
  1449. jonas’ yes, but that’s the fault of the people abusing tor
  1450. tom if your block tor entirly
  1451. arcseconds has joined
  1452. jonas’ re anonymity: muc.xmpp.org can still not know who the user really is. the onion service also does not learn the users real IP address.
  1453. tom just just treat tor exit nodes like any other ip on the internet and do automatic temporary blocks
  1454. jonas’ it would only be blocked entirely for anon
  1455. tom there's an accessibility factor too
  1456. jonas’ that’d be feasible if fully automatic blocks were feasible, but they are not
  1457. jonas’ manual action is required to determine that an XMPP message is spam, nobody has figured an automatism so far.
  1458. tom that means the user has to know about and setup an account on a onion server
  1459. jonas’ yes
  1460. jonas’ that’s tough
  1461. jonas’ but on the other side of the equation there is the factor of limited resources of dealing with abuse.
  1462. tom that's an accessibility issue. the whole point of anonsasl was to make things more accessible to everybody
  1463. jonas’ as always
  1464. jonas’ either way
  1465. jonas’ &
  1466. patasca has left
  1467. patasca has joined
  1468. tom » <jonas’> manual action is required to determine that an XMPP message is spam, nobody has figured an automatism so far. when someone bans someone on your server, and other channels start banning them too that could be a good indicator if we had something to track
  1469. jonas’ that’s... way too slow in my opinion
  1470. jonas’ and the spam came from at least two different IP addresses in two different channels, so it’s not going to work
  1471. tom what's a reasonable time for you to metigate spam?
  1472. jonas’ (with IP based bans from tor abuse)
  1473. jonas’ but yes, we need such a protocol to exchange information about abusers in real time, however, it’s complex and this is not the venue to develop it
  1474. tom do we though?
  1475. schäfchen726 has joined
  1476. qy no.
  1477. tom torexit abusers don't happen nearly as much or to every single ip on the internet as people seam to think it does
  1478. tom my small site is probably fine
  1479. tom in fact
  1480. jonas’ tom, yes, we need such a protocol, but it’s unrelated to Tor abuse, more a general spam-wave thing
  1481. tom chinese telecom ip addresses and russian cellphones are much more of a problem for me than tor exits
  1482. tom and it's not really that big of a problem with my fail2ban sensors
  1483. tom jonas’: look at DCC and pyzor
  1484. tom (distributed checksum clearinhouse)
  1485. tom it's one of the protocols i use for that exact purpose on email
  1486. tom https://www.rhyolite.com/dcc/
  1487. jonas’ doesn’t sound like something which would help with all of that "hello" spam.
  1488. tom https://www.pyzor.org/en/latest/
  1489. Харпер on a different note why is it not possible to apply bogofilter to xmpp?
  1490. Харпер moparisthebest, said it was because messages are too short
  1491. moparisthebest to be clear that's what I recall reading somewhere, I'm no expert
  1492. Харпер not disagreeing with you, it sounds reasonable
  1493. Харпер but is it one of those things that really isn't possible, or does it happen that it might actually work really well just no one has tried
  1494. tom i don't see why you couldn't anyways
  1495. Bjarkan has left
  1496. Харпер surely someone has tried?
  1497. tom just reduce the weight of the bogo or fuzzy hash scoring system in your overwall anomaly scoring system
  1498. tom i bet like most spam metigation tech actually in use it would be beneficial as one componet as part of a large collection of things
