    > John , fyi, the one account in your list emanating from a server I administrate was already dealt with. :) We detected that the spammer was using some tools for solving the captcha automatically and sending too many requests, my friend wrote a script that filtered the requests and blocked 50 IPs yesterday and I haven't receive subscription requests since then. The problem is solved on our server for now but the spammer is still able to register new accounts on different servers and they should do something.. I think we need a harder captcha that can't be solved by bots and different ways of spam fighting

    supposedly captchas aren't great, but curious were you just using the ejabberd example IM captcha?
