I feel it is time to work more publicly on something we have been  
working since a while now at ProcessOne.

We have deployed ejabberd on many of the largest public XMPP  
deployment. As such we see with our customers lots if not all possible  
real life abuse cases.
Since one year now, we have started an internal initiative to protect  
deployed servers against those known abuses. For us, it consists in  
providing patch to fight such a case, but also tools to enforce users  

I think that the awareness of such problem as risen recently and we  
would like to open this initiative to people interested in thinking  
with us about possible abuse cases and solutions, implementation, best  
pratices and collective mecanism to limit those problems.

We have opened a wiki (account needed to edit pages) and we will be  
moving progressivelly our internal content to this space:

Please, drop me a mail if you would like to get an account to work  
with us on this topic.

I hope this helps :)
