I think it was a bit over-the-top for Chee Chew to claim that the
"majority" of the server-to-server connectivity to the Google Talk
service was established by "organizations or individuals looking to
bombard Google Talk users with chat spam". Having talked with
journalists here and there, I freely admit that misquoting might have
occurred here. But the spam issue we've been fighting of late emerged
relatively recently -- I don't think you can claim that this was a big
problem in the period from 2005 (or the launch of the Jabber network
in 1999) until 2010 or 2011.

In any case, I say let's continue to focus on improving XMPP. When
people get sick of all these silos again, as I expect they will, we'll
be ready.
