[Operators] DDoS attacks against jabber.org
maranda at lightwitch.org

I vaguely remember in the past having a discussion with MattJ about
these rooms years back,
I pointed out that mostly the rooms were just placeholders having
subjects pointing to rooms on other conference servers.. and this in my
opinion is semantically no different from unsollicited advertising /
Given the insistence... I just ended restricting room creation on
conference.lightwitch.org to the parent domain's users which sorted it.
