No, Blars' personal spam filtering is considerably stricter than what he
uses in the BTS. He was quite clear when he joined owner@bugs that he
thought his personal filtering was too strict for the BTS (to general

Blars' work has done fantastic things to bugs.debian.org's ham/spam
ratio, with an acceptably low rate of false positives as far as I've
been able to tell.
