Yes, I agree, it should be personalized to the user/phone, and being 
prompted after a call to specify spam/non-spam would be nice, but might 
get annoying for users too.

Using a downloadable database of spammy phone numbers to block calls or 
SMS message from could get quite large. Plus you have to deal with users 
attempting to poison the database, such as the "Mallory" user that 
Heikki originally discussed.

I don't have access from work, but has anyone started a wiki page about 
a feature list for a call/sms filtering package? I'd be happy to add my 
$0.02 to a feature list and help with building some of the software.
