I'm thinking of installing a XMPP client again. I don't really have any reason why, just to do it again.

Can anyone recommend a good jabber/XMPP provider? I want to avoid being "username@shadyawfulhost.net"

I have a new publication: "Dark web advertising: the dark magic system on tor hidden service search engines". It's a fun article where I riff on Raymond Williams's classic "advertising: the magic system" article while taking a look at the dubious world of dark web search engine advertising.
