Hi Folks,

Although there's some merit to Aryo's suggestions, there's a problem with it:
Most people should primarily be looking for an XMPP server that is in their
region of the world, not necessarily one that "scores highest". Sorting by
country/region is therefore preferred.
The shorter the data transmission paths, the smaller the chance of
interception of data and the better the overall user experience. In
addition, XMPP's network gets its strength from being distributed,

In addition, only including score grade "A" is a little short-sighted, IMHO,
as server operators may be very good admins running a secure server while
not getting a grade A (for example by offering potentially weaker ciphers
for extended compatibility with clients - the test seems to pick the lowest
available to grade servers on). Pushing specific servers to the foreground
based on their score is a breeding ground for favoritism which I think we
should avoid.

Kind regards,
  Mark.
