    Description of feature: - Add a room config option to disable IQ routing to participants. - IQ routing should be disabled by default. - Announce the value of that setting in disco info, so clients can act before joining the MUC In non-anon rooms IQ routing is not necessary at all, and in anon rooms it should be a edge edge edge case that a room creator wants to advertise a room as anon, while at the same time compromises the anonymity with routing IQ requests to the bare JID.

    To be clear, you're okay with avatars not working in semi-anonymous rooms, then? (I suspect most people will not be okay with that)

    I like this and would accept a patch adding such an option. No immediate plans to write it myself right now.

    This is issue was made in 2019. Now i think prosody respects the user decision if the avatar or vcard is in PEP and not public, and rejects IQ equests for the avatar/vcard. So the situation is a bit better now. Still IQ routing in MUCs was always a hack as i understand it, so it does not hurt to make an option available to room owner to disable it. Also many clients dont support making vcards and avatars private.
