Abuse reports

XMPP servers properly compliant with XEP-0157 expose contact addresses for reporting abuse. At the moment, Gajim must be used for sending queries to obtain those addresses; I don't know of any other clients that expose an XML console at the moment.

Paste the following snippet into the console and replace admin@example.com with your Jabber ID (JID) and offendingdoma.in with the domain you want to obtain contact info from.

<iq from='admin@example.com'
    to='offendingdoma.in'
    id='disco1'
    type='get'>
  <query xmlns='http://jabber.org/protocol/disco#info'/>
</iq>

Look at the output and search for this snippet:

<field var="abuse-addresses" type="list-multi">
  <value>mailto:admin@offendingdoma.in</value>
  <value>xmpp:admin@offendingdoma.in</value>
</field>

The addresses in the <value> tags are who you should contact. mailto: indicates an email address and xmpp: indicates a JID. I recommend just picking one. In either case, contact that address and wait 7 days for an appropriate response before contacting their ISP. If the ISP doesn't take action, open a PR adding that domain to JabberSPAM/blacklist.
