The idea is to use mod_firewall and block messages of strangers,
that contain certain strings, e.g. "ddos" or "payout". Also some
well-known SPIM servers can be blacklisted. (This is what I got
from singpolyma, btw.)
IMHO, the blacklist and rules should be published somewhere, so
that everybody can understand, why a message is blocked and whom
to contact to get their server off the blacklist ;~)
