Could the phishing net be expanded to delete/deliver/whatever phishing 
attempts on selected web sites?  We could maintain a liste of web sites 
that wouldn't tolerate phishing attempts against them (our local banking 
sites, for example).  If a phishing attempt was detected for one of 
those sites, the mail would be deleted/delivered/whatever.

Could this be of interest to other people?

Thanks again!
