No: <http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2007/04/msg00809.html>.

The amount of spam that has passed the listserver's filter mechanisms in
the last few days might be large, but it is still only a tiny fraction
of what's actually coming in at lists.debian.org.

Sometimes I have the impression that the people who complain the most
about spam from Debian lists are the ones who don't even know how *bad*
the spam problem actually is. Even on my own mail server with only four
valid mail addresses plus some aliases I reject more than a thousand
delivery attempts every day. Receiving 20-50 spam mails a day is surely
an annoyance. But you are still only seeing the tip of the iceberg.

Driving behind lorries carrying hazardous chemicals makes me wish for a
simpler life.
