Glad to hear there is so much interest. :)

SPIM is the reason I gave up on the debian XMPP server a few months ago,
with the intention of revisiting the issue once more spam measurements
were in place. I had another login attempt today, and was sad to
discover that around 1600 spam messages were waiting for me. Is there
no mechanism in place to remove spam from the server once a source is
identified as a spammer?
