Why wouldn't this work (on IOS 11.3 at least):

a) pick an unused interface (shutdown):

inter s0/2
 ip address 192.168.1.5 255.255.255.252
 shutdown
ip route 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0 Null0 254

b) Say the spammer is 220.88.182.128/27:

access-list 20 permit 220.88.182.128 0.0.0.31
route-map spam-filter permit 10
 match ip address 20
 set ip default next-hop 192.168.1.6

c) On your Fast Ethernet - or whatever interface you use to feed pkts to
your outgoing lines:

int fa1/0
 ip policy route-map spam-filter

All outgoing pkts to 220.88.192.128/27 now should go to Null0.  I am sure
one can improve on the logic even more.
