centralised balcklist? didn't Mark Ghosh start a project called CSPAM 
had a centralised blacklist which got input from the CSPAM plugins 
on all blogs? anyway, its gonna be a heavy duty project, just like

I think that current plugins that blacklists, like Spam Karma, also use
something like this, meaning expiring IPs & domains which cease to
spam, no?

But I like your idea overall, blacklisting at firewall level will save 
quite a
many resources, especially for blogs that get a lot of spam!! :)
