While an excellent idea, there needs to be some method for either preventing
our end from unadvertently spamming the other end; usually one or two
reports will do it if it's hosted on a small company but I do admit that
with cases like Verizon flood mail would probably help.

Maybe set up a log to keep track of senders and how many times they have
sent, and when their abuse/sysadmins have been notified X number of times?

feh; if I knew more c/perl I'd take up the mod challenge to do it but alas,
web code is my strength =( but from what I do now I do know such a solution
would be time consuming.

Alas, I have rambled ;p but I do vote "yes" to add this in the future.
