No, it's not the same, not for the purpose of deciding whether
*Courier* needs milters.  *You* don't need milters because you don't
mind eating the occasional slice of Spam.  But you need to keep those
concepts separate, or you're going to confuse the heck out of those of
us who do care care about *every* spam we SMTP accept (not to mention
yanking on Brad's "do it in the MTA" chain).

Sure, I do that too, but also avail myself of the option to SMTP
reject SpamAssassin scores >15 (which actually does happen quite
frequently even after RBL).
