Thank you.  Inspired by your page I created the following page (on
gitlab as I don't want to rely on a non-free service like bitbucket) to
document the JIDs that spammed me.


Has anyone documented how to use a list like this to ban certain
JIDs/servers?  Doing that is probably server-dependent, but still it
might be possible to discuss it generally.  There may be opportunity to
create a DNS-based blacklist out of this as well.
