    Hello. I was referred to here. Can anyone help me reach the admin of creep.im? The server has issues for well over a year with connectivity and message delivery and I couldn't reach the admin neither via email nor via his own XMPP address.

  7. Alastair Hogge

    That is concerning.

    ororo: in the past, I've had troulbe reaching their XEP-0157 contact as well as their hoster regarding spam from bot accounts on their domain, so they ended up on https://github.com/JabberSPAM/blacklist/

  9. Licaon_Kter

    They have the antispam, mod_block_strangers thing that's hit and miss

  10. Ge0rG

    Licaon_Kter: that's only protecting them from external bots, not other people from their bots

  11. Licaon_Kter

    Ge0rG: ..and from our reports lol

  12. ororo

    As someone not too versed in the terminology of this sphere, what is XEP-0157? A specification to have a contact address reachable in case of issues? And what servers enact this blacklist?

  13. Licaon_Kter

    ororo: nat reachable, just discoverable

  14. Licaon_Kter

    ororo: discoverable, not necessarily reachable

  15. ororo

    Discoverable how?

  16. Licaon_Kter

    ororo: using xmpp syntax

  17. Ge0rG

    ororo: some clients have a plugin to query a different server for contact info

  18. Ge0rG

    and yes, your induction was right, this is about contact addresses for different kinds of issues

  19. Ge0rG

    ororo: I don't know which servers enact the blacklist, it's just a public service of sorts

  20. ororo

    I see. Thank you for the explanations.

    e.g. Gajim has this in the server info dialog

  23. Ge0rG

    yeah, that's from XEP-0157

  24. mjk nods

  25. ororo

    This was on the official website all along and he never replied via Email nor accepted me as a contact on XMPP.

  26. ororo

    From what I can see, creep.im is abandoned for over a year now.

  27. Licaon_Kter

    It was maintained, as usual admining is hard, takes time. I see it lost some features...

  28. ororo

    What features?
