Part of this can be blamed on the fact that the JSF server list totally sucks.  
It only tells you about the components each server has, and nothing about 
userbase, availability, throughput, etc, of said server.  Nor does it give 
any details about who is running the server or even a way to reach the admin, 
so you don't know if it is a "fly-by-night" server that is going to be gone 
the next day.

When people are first introduced to Jabber, I think they either pick 
jabber.org or a server with the coolest sounding name, and then they are 
disappointed with the selected server's reliability, speed, etc and end up 
switching servers soon after.  The JSF website needs to stop giving bad 
recommendations so these problems never happen in the first place.  In my 
opinion, we need much stronger requirements for getting listed on the "Public 
Servers" page.
