WordPress SpamAssassin Plugin
Thread Description:

IOError threadlinked above have released a SpamAssassin plugin for WordPress - I use this tool for my spam filtering on email, which is it's primary use and it's not bad. Not great, but not bad.

Apparently it can do more than just email and WP users will enjoy playing with this to see if it's up to the job of fighting comment spam:

SpamAssassin is a nice program designed for ISP mail servers that immediately rejects incoming spam before it ever gets anywhere near your inbox. However, it also has its own wire protocol, so you can write custom programs to speak to it. And that’s exactly what I did. It’s far from perfect, I’m sure, but I’m also sure it’ll improve given time and feedback.

I shouldnt think that would bother some folks for 5mins but it will raise the bar a little when targeting WP installs im sure...
