A friend pointed out  http://spampoison.com to me. 

Interesting premise, although I think similar ideas have been raised here, 
ie publishing lots of bogus email addresses on the web for spammers to 
harvest.  THis one goes a bit further in making an organized effort to get 
lots of sites to do so.  All of the addresses are ones that are known 
spammers, but that makes them highly likely to bounce back to the sender. 
I can see this causing alot of backscatter spam, which could get ugly.
