On the contrary.  You'd know this if you ever considered how much spam
the list would receive if not for filtering, or, better yet, if you
simply looked at the headers.  For instance, the spam filter headers for
your message I'm replying to here:

There are no less than 3 layers of spam checking for each message
arriving at the list server.
