Desired feature of the day:

A language flag for Gmail, that says, "Just mark everything in any Asian language as spam". My new crossert.com domain (which I'll be using for my consulting work) is immediately getting hit by a bunch of spam, all of it apparently in Korean.

Really, it would be a fine first-level filter. I don't believe I've ever received a single legitimate email that contained more than a few characters in any Asian language (none of which I read), and lots of spam that did, so as spam-filters go, it would be fine bang for the buck...
