[REBOL] Re: Server side Cerebrus?

My dream spam killer would be server-side, to be set up and maintained by webmasters
and ISPs. Multiple spam killer servers would be collaborative in spam detection. Researching
today, I finally see it starting to happen at http://razor.sourceforge.net/ , in concert
(eg) with spamassassin.org .
A widespread network of servers will detect and report spam broadcasts, then automatically
kill spam within minutes of arriving at the pop.
I have other ideas too (eg a whitelist verification and registration service). A spamkiller
would have to keep evolving to stay ahead of spamming technology, but I'm very excited
to think that these first few features alone could be an excellent start for a killer,
spamkiller app. What's also cool is that, even tho server-side apps would work best and
collaborate best, client level apps could still work and even colloborate with other
servers, not to mention help the whole system gain critical mass more quickly.
I'm afraid that the only downside for rebol would be that the system could work so well
at the 3rd party (eg rebol app) level that such spamkiller systems would eventually get
written into exising pop servers. But before then, I really think this could be *the*
hope for killing spam.

a server side Cerebrus that could a) filter away spam for POP clients (before they are
fetched, that is), and b) filter away spam for the mail server itself?
Ah, you hate Microsoft too! So comrade, ven do vee plan to defect?
