That's a rather big project.... If you're trying to put something together
to aid people in filtering stuff, only doing this is not going to make
much of a difference.

As an answer to your question, I think 
http://spamhaus.org/
is a good start.

However, to do filtering, I suggest you look at SpamAssassin. It's good.
But, you have to keep it up-to-date, it's an arms race. Adrian Bunk does a
really good job with his packages, have a look at
