Thats just the reason why I'd say: Don't start sending unasked mails to
anyone - not even with the best intention.

Any again: There is only one way to get rid of spam is: Find your own
solution and DO NOT SHARE IT. I love sharing, but when everyone uses the
same anti-spam algos they will stop working. Even if everyone invents his
own plugin and then shares it and then everyone uses every plugin this will
only result in the spammers finding their way though every plugin. Keep
yours private - share it with you best friends only. Let not more then 10
not-so-spam-worthy blog use it. If you need more create a new for every 10
blogs. Spammers will have a hard time: They don't know the code (which they
would do with shared plugins) they don't know where it is installed and 10
blogs aren't worth too much work for them.
