The lists.debian.org spam "button" doesn't have much immediate effect.
The bugs.debian.org spam "button", after manual review, is used to
clean the BTS and train the spam filters.  This review usually occurs
daily.  An occasional mistake is no problem, but using it excessivly
on bugs that don't have spam may get your IP address banned from the
BTS web site.

I also clean bugs that have gotten messages with questionable
spamassassin scores.

Scripting using the BTS spam feature is pretty easy, I've done so to
process the email to owner@bugs telling us about spam in a bug.

With Microsoft, failure is not an option.  It is a standard feature.
