While economic solutions to spam are an interesting idea, this is a terrible implementation. It's a challenge/response scheme. Like all of these things, there's a fundamental flaw: you can't reply to spammers -- replies go to innocent 3rd parties because spammers forge the return address.

In other words, this actually creates more spam.
