That was ecactly my concern and idea. I found that on all my sites that were 
hit by spam (the five sites I maintain) the spam was exactly the same. My 
most popular of the five was hit first. But the other four had to be learned 
to handle the *exact same spam messages*. 

I beleive sites like sfx can me considered as "master brains", since they 
learn trought a much bigger educating audience, but also becuase they are 
much more interesting spam targets. I did not thing of spreading things like 
regexps etc. Merely about tokens etc.
