'lo all, this is just a short note to intro myself and mention a JEP 
proposal I'm starting ( hopefully I'll have something fleshed out enough to 
post to the list as an early early draft soon ).

Anyway, who am I?  I'm Mark Derricutt, 29, developer/coder geek living in 
Auckland New Zealand, currently doing Java based SMS messaging systems, and 
advocating Jabber as much as can whereever I go.

So whats the JEP I'm formulating in my head?  SPAM / SPAM Filtering.

I've not seen spam much on Jabber myself, but had ALOT of it on ICQ years 
ago, and recently a series of articles have been published talking on the 
rise of IM based spam, which got me thinking...

So far I'm touching any XML messaging details such as <x> element here or 
there untill I've got a more clearer idea of what I actually think should 
be doable.

The basics so far for a first step:

  - a standard way for a client to be told that an IM may be spam
  - a standard way for a client to tell a server that an IM was/was not spam

Is there an interest in this JEP out there?


Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will be a
violent psychopath who knows where you live.
