Easy enough to block #25 by default -- turn it on for anyone who asks.

  I think the idea of a botnet black hole list is great, really. Best if 
support could be integrated into routers, though maybe enough to start 
just to make a linux/unix program to do this to prove the concept.    
Would be handy for online forums where the bots are posting comment spam 
all the time.

I think this site, projecthoneypot is similar?  Though maybe something 
that targets the bot nets specifically would be useful? I'm not sure.  
Really I'm just an end user here.
