Right On Brother. You don't need a big community start small with committed people who want to stop spam, virii, Trojans and
work the solution. Like GOOGLE, that's how most great projects get started.

You don't even need big companies to approve or back you -- you just 
need a website and the time to put into it.

It's a real need so then advertise and let the market take over.  Get 
some community involvement.  Start with things that will draw people in. 

The market is like gravity -- trying to force it to do something is 
almost impossible if you're small.  What you want to do is grow your 
project until it can reach the critical mass where it can't be ignored.  
Then you use your influence to affect change. 

How serious are people with regard to fixing this problem?  Would people 
put some time into a community run site that had the goal of becoming an 
organization pointed towards becoming a primary depot of security
