So, if enough emails with the same subject comes in, in a short enough period of time, we stop accepting them. And keep a note that we shouldnt receive these emails anymore. Of course, converting that information from a crufty data structure to a shiny web page is just an hour of hacking away. So, here's the webpage:

This page is in BETA! It will change some. Its also only updated every minute or so.
Some of these emails get totally deleted (instead of a few initial copies that are entered before we figure out we're about to get about 9 zillion of them). So if you goto a mailbox looking for one of these spams and its empty, its because the email got deleted for other reasons (i.e., its a bounce message, it had a trigger word ("viagra", "schoolgirl", etc) in its title).
Also, the time "In System" indicates when we first saw that message at all. So if it says like 35minutes, then we've been receiving a steady stream of those spams for 35 minutes. Once the steady stream stops (for a few minutes), it will leave the list.
(I do plan to have a xml feed for this eventually, if you'd make use of that, let me know)
