If Jabber really takes off, someone will create a special Jabber server
for spammers, which just sends every message from a different randomized
fake JID. Although at least, with server-server dialback, they won't be
able to fake the server name on their messages (right?)
For this and other reasons I would rather see trust as "opt-in", i.e.
people will be blocked unless there is a reason to consider them
trustworthy. Or if not blocked completely, then at least downgraded in
importance, i.e. messages from them don't pop up on your screen but just
get added to a list in a window that you can open once in a while and
look through. Sort of like the "Junk?" mailbox that my mail rules throw
suspicious messages into.
