This sounds like a good idea. What exactly do you mean by spam control
module? Right now, the MUC protocol includes ways to kick and ban users
from a room (etc.), and ejabberd implements those features. It seems to
me that we may also need ways to:
- Ban users (or domains etc.) across a groupchat service
- Remove spam from the room history / archive
On conference.jabber.org we have started to see spammers coming into
chatrooms, leaving a few links, then leaving -- but their spam links are
in the room archives forever, search engines pick them up, and probably
www.jabber.org is therefore considered some kind of spam hole. Not good.
Support for SPIM Reporting (XEP-0161) may also be helpful.
Are there other aspects of MUC spam that I am missing?
