I think that the ACA has had someone install SpamAssassin, and yeah, look, 
suddenly they are witnessing a reduction in spam to ACA mail users ;-)

I can't ever recall getting spam from any organisation which would be
adversely affected by the local anti-spam laws, so therefore no reduction
possible via that method.
