    is jabber.am a known spam server?

  2. MSavoritias (fae,ve)

    i have a room and i am little skeptical of a person in there with random numbers and a guest in their name

  3. MSavoritias (fae,ve)

    and the jabber.am site doesnt say much with last mastodon post 4 years ago

  4. snikket dot deeeeee

    It's not on the list at least https://github.com/JabberSPAM/blacklist/blob/master/blacklist.txt

  5. Guus

    it's not in the semi-live stats either: https://xmppbl.org/stats

  6. MSavoritias (fae,ve)

    hmm ok then

  7. jonasโ€™

    huh, TIL xmppbl.org/stats

  8. MSavoritias (fae,ve)

    from a quick look i havent banned a jabber.am domain anywhere so lets wait and see

  9. snikket dot deeeeee

    But seems the pre-test chance to be a spam server is high, if the name contains _jabber_ ๐Ÿ™‚

    I strongly suggest you do not employ new rules that block federation with all domain names that include the word 'jabber' though.

  11. Guus

    Although I shall not contest that it would be effective in blocking spam.

  12. MSavoritias (fae,ve)

    i dont own the server so

  13. MSavoritias (fae,ve)

    but i can block them from the room. will see if anything is needed

  15. MSavoritias (fae,ve)

    deprecate jabber /s

  16. snikket dot deeeeee

    I was just amazed by the block list stats. On further inspection, it's" jabb*" to be aware of, not only jabber. ๐Ÿ™‚
