Two things: 

  what is the proportion of mail received which is NOT spam,
  debian-list mail vs. your other mail?  Many of these lists
  are high traffic and you are comparing  absolutes  if  you
  only consider the spam figure.

  Secondly, if these spams are already in  your  gmail  spam
  folder, what's the problem?  For  most  people,  the  spam
  "problem" is the stuff they _can't catch_.
