Erm, seriously?  I don't think any of the mail team has "given up
easily" and dealing with spam is something which requires constant time
and attention.  Also, pretty sure the 5% above was inclusive of
legitimate mail.  And, last but not least, if you don't have any clue
how spam is being handled today, you probably have a long learning
period to go through before you would be able to constructivly help.

If you really want to help, start learning about what's being done
