I really wish there was a way you can completely "BLOCK" certain email addresses to where it would "BOUNCE" it back to them via MAILER DEAMON this would slowly allow us to weed them out and make them have to do more work of re creating a new email everytime they wanted to spam.

If this is already available please let me know. If not I am going to suggest this to google.
