Most filtering that I've seen (email, router, whatever) that just works great
for a 7 man company will not work when you serve several million users,
that's a fact.

One false positive report per week from 7 users. How many per week - or per
day - when you have 40 million users, is a question that gets answered real
fast.

A lot of the bad filtering (or lack of filtering, for that matter) decisions
I've seen at large network providers and ISPs is generally where they are
also unresponsive to their users and to the internet community that reports
stuff to them (quite a few places I could name where most role accounts seem
to funnel straight to /dev/null)
