Yea, verily.  This is not an impossible problem for this community; it is
only an impossible problem for any one of us acting totally independently.
And while the solution isn't instant, the tide CAN be turned.
Problem is, we are a fighting a war we already lost. It's put out a fire here and there, and break a wave while you're at it.

How about seeing some simple measures such as blocking outgoing port 25? at ISP's? Not a perfect solution, but it's a partial solution for some of the problems. Combined with other solutions we could start seeing a change.
