AOL Instant Messenger has a 'warn' function, I wrote a nifty little plugin
for GAIM (A multi-IM-client available for various platforms) that simply
drops messages from unknown people with a warning level >10%.

If only everything else had a 'warn' function. (Although, to a degree razor
serves this purpose along with a whitelist in spamassassin)
