I think it would too subject to wild variance in what someone views as bad. 

Actual SPAM (viagra, Nigerian prices, etc.), of course. 
Industry-related SPAM, probably. 
Targeted marketing (looking for someone at Facebook, seeing someone from Facebook and tracking them down... or seeing someone at someone in a specific area or...) ehh, probably not

I don't think there's a mechanism to do that. (Please correct me 
if I'm wrong.) However, I think it's feasible to construct a 
list and make it publicly available so that folks can consult it 
before making purchase decisions.
