I'm definitely a counterexample to that. At my home account,
spam outweighs ham by factors of hundreds. But the address is
published in a few places, enough that I don't want to abandon

So spambayes routinely dumps 50-100 spam into my spam folder
every day, and once every week or two leaves a ham message in
my inbox. This is vital to me, as doing it manually pretty
much guaranteed I'd miss something. My favourite example of
that was the email from my sister, reminding me I owed her
some money - "Subject: Debt!!!". Manually, I'd never even
look at the body (and the sender address didn't register with
me at first, either...)

That would be interesting...
