Thank you. An 'early and often' Bot-Proof Challenges 'building block'
proto-JEP would be very good to have. :)

Yes. I think we should allow in-band, Web and other techniques.

> 1. Preventing SPIM on a standalone IM service
> 2. Preventing SPIM on an interconnected IM network

Yes. Although I prefered Tijl's and Sander's labeling for the two

1. SPIM from clients
2. SPIM from servers

Their labelling avoids mentioning the 'hot' issue of standalone IM
services. Once you get past the semantics, are we talking about the same
two problems?
