in contrast to a recent prediction of
interoperability coming to im, those of us running a
jabber server still have to contend with being blacklisted:

“This past Sunday, AOL blacklisted my public Jabber server, , making it only the third Jabber server to be blocked from accessing the AIM and ICQ networks, after the two “official” public Jabber servers of Jabber.ORG and Jabber.COM.

“This story takes everyone from reasoning out my own options to ending up understanding my solution is easy, but the cures for the greater symptoms are much more difficult to obtain, and asks how prodigy projects can hope to face corporate titans and forces of nature.”
