    That wouldn't work. If I had a grudge, I could start spamming people with "Scourfish, Inc".

    But that wont happen. Alot of spam comes from Europe(at least mine does), and I contacted one of the ISP's in the past about continuous spam and they said "Thats not our customer. It's their customer." and referred me to an ISP with a totally different name, yet it had the same admin address(are they retarded?). So I mailed the admin back and he/she just wrote something to the effect of "Don't get mad at us, it's not our fault if our customers are doing illegal actions with our SMTP servers which are not illegal here. Stop mailing me.". At times like that I find it amazing that arson isn't more popular, cause really... there's gotta be some kinda anti-spam maniac somewhere!

    However, as appealing as it may sound, its out of the question. The best we could do is create an Anti-Spam tool in C/C++. I built one over a year ago but it had memory leaks. But if anyone wants to try to work on one later as a team project then I wouldn't mind. Also, McAfee has one out too, its just funner to make them on your own
