Gtalk problems?

I’ve been having issues with Google Talk for some days now.  At first, I didn’t bother to look for the source of the problem, but right now I can’t event see all my online contacts (and that’s no mater which Open Source IM client I use).

I’ve started telepathy-gabble with debug to get the right error message:

<error code=”500″ type=”wait”><resource-constraint xmlns=”urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-stanzas”/><text xmlns=”urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:xmpp-stanzas”>Too many stanzas sent per day.</text></error></iq>’

It all looks like my account had been suspended for sending too many messages but it isn’t the case.  It is funny because empathy was giving me “Messages is too long” error messages and pidgin was saying “Unauthorized”.

So where’s the problem? Did my account get high jacked to send spam? are there issues with the Google Talk XMPP servers (I recall people having issues yesterday)?

I think the utilmate solution will be to just create an account on a real XMPP server and drop Google Talk at once.

Update: problem solved, the service is back to normal.  Go figure what happened!
