It is. But it's an interesting topic. :)

We have not seen very much spam or other abusive behavior yet for
various reasons, but we have been thinking about how to prevent for
quite some time. See for example:
Per recent discussion on the standards at xmpp.org list, we probably want
to define stream and stanza error conditions for abusive communications
sent between domains. I've got a todo item for that somewhere...
Also, be aware that in 2007 the jabber.org service (which runs ejabberd)
experienced some abusive behavior, and the Process-One team wrote some
patches to help us deal with that. I'd think that the relevant patches
were incorporated into ejabberd 2.0, but Mickael and Christophe can talk
