Spamhole sucks up SPAM

What if there were a black hole on the internet that sucked up SPAM? What if spammers spent alot of resources sending to these black holes? Would that change the economics of SPAM in a material way? Maybe. Check out Spamhole.com: Two hour email addresses. No logins required. Spam dies here.

Here is what a guy on Slashdot said
[0]mike9010 writes "A person named I)ruid has come up with an ingenious way to combat those spammers. His program, [1]spamhole, creates a false 'open relay' that the spammer thinks he/she can send messages through. The messages then get sent nowhere, and the spammer has no idea. "spamhole is an open project. Hopefully, through user's and developer's contributions, we will amass a collection of spamhole implementations spanning all commonly used platforms, programming languages, etc. Ease of configuration and use are the primary objectives, for the easier to use by the non-techical layperson the implementations are, the more widely adopted and used spamhole will become.""
