Well, yes, but isn't blacklisting From: addresses a bit risky in the
first place? That's what this file does. You are, by designed,
guaranteed to have a large number of joe-jobbed addresses in it. Not to
mention low efficacy because spammers rotate addresses they are
joe-jobbing from quite rapidly.

Heh.. it's a *LOT* of addresses.. hashing will help, but even without
considering its immense size, the datastream itself isn't useful for
spam filtering. Really, this file is only interesting as a research tool
IMO.
