Sorry for the recent restarts, but I am still NOT DONE with those spamming cunts.
For all the new people here: In-Band registration is now disabled. This means you can’t register an account via Jabber-Client.
If you want to register an account on is-a-furry.org, you have to do this >>here<< (this was available since months, but I just wanted to point it out again)
So what happend? In the last days I got hundrets and hundrets of spammers and bots which tried to register (in summary) 134.763 accounts on is-a-furry.org, im.it-native.de and jhml.de. They are stupid and didn’t knew that its only possible to create an account every ten minutes from the same IP address, so I could block nearly 90% of their tries without moving a finger. Additional 8% were blocked by my “servers are not allowed to registrate an account” rule. Means if a server on the net (those you can rent from hosting companies) are not allowed to register an XMPP account. (Don’t get me wrong, if you want to use your jabber account on IRSSI or any other CMD-Messenger on linux or windows, feel free to do so, you just couldn’t REGISTER an account.) Anyways. I got sick of it. Then the real spamming started. Russian Jabber messages about “Quality Jabber Spam, 2 Million accounts! Just contact email@example.com. So I took action.
Here are the latest changes:
- In-Band registration is deactivated. Means you have to register an account via Website.
- Strangers can’t text you anymore. Means, if you want to chat with somebody, you have to add him to your contact list first.
- You still can join MUCs (rooms) and chat with everyone, whisper to anyone and get whispers from anyone in the room.
I hope now the spamming stops. We’ll see.
