I was sure fellow operators would be familiar with the normal range of abuse
an XMPP server sees, but maybe a few examples are in order:
* Automated registrations by bots (in-band as well as captcha-bypassing web
registration)
* Automated IMs sent by bots with widely varying spam content (either after
manual registration or automated registration)
* "Lisa" type honeypots for mail-spammed users
etc.

Mark.
