There are some new approaches being considered that might include what you're thinking of. The G, Y, and MSN algo approaches can certainly use some improving on. Personally, I'd love to be able to mark obvious spam sites as such (MFA's and all the other low-life that pollute the serps).

I am not sure the idea of general users being able to mark out sites as MFA or spam sites would work.
The average surfer probably does not know enough to be able recognise and mark one properly and it would be open to so much spam, and malicious use itself.

|How it might work: while surfing the web, if you find an MFA site for example, you could mark it as spam... |
The option for voting is already available in the Google Toolbar with the "Vote for this page" and "Vote against this page" buttons. Furthermore you can file an official spam report via Google's webmaster tools. So what do you need more?

I use boxtrapper on my E-Mail so a sender has to verify they are human and not a bot etc. Works for me, although sometimes other things from places I do want to get E-Mail from get stuck in the filter, like the adwords signup E-Mails.
Anyway, put it this way, I was getting 800+ spam E-Mails a day, now I get none, works for me!

I beg to differ!
