Comment (by c960657):

 Ignoring the spam problem, I still think it would be useful if WordPress
 showed error messages returned by the update services.

 I frequently get mail from users who have problems pinging my XML-RPC.
 This is often because they ping with a slightly different URL than the one
 they are subscribed with. My reason for rejecting the ping is explained in
 the error message, but this isn't displayed to WordPress users, so it is
 difficult for them to find out exactly what is wrong.

 Also this will alert honest users who ping update services that have been
 taken out of service so that they don't waste time and bandwidth on
 abandoned services, and so that the abandoned hostname isn't "cursed"
 forever with pings from WordPress users who have a larger number of update
 services copy-and-pasted from lists like the one on
