How likely is it that it's going to rain tomorrow? A lot of people
think they might know, but probably the only certain thing is that it
will happen at some point :)

Think about it from the ground up... where will the spammer find your
server/conference address? If it's public and in some list then it's
certainly going to happen sooner or later (we've already seen it on
jabber.org). It's not very common, but it happens every now and then.

If your server isn't so easy to find then perhaps you'll be safe for a
while, who knows? :)
