Hi Everyone,
I wanted to get a jabber-account on earth.li,
but my client (Pidgin on Windows 7) throws a "403 forbidden" at me...

On https://xmpp.net/directory.php jabber.earth.li is listed as 
public/free and has A-Grades in terms of Security.
So I assumed I could register with my client.

Is there any webinterface through which I could register?
Is it a client-problem?
Or are registrations disabled?

Thank you in Advance,
Maciej "Metty" Schuttkowski
