thank you for posting this -- i too noticed a recent
drop in spam quantity and was scandalized to learn that
not only had my isp started filtering for me (also
without telling me!), they were deleting the spams!  i
had to have tech support walk me through logging in to
their web mail, which i have never used til today, had
to fill out my profile before i could get to email, and
was shocked to learn what they had started doing
without forcing me to agree to it first

they do provide the option of turning off the
filtering, which i did immediately, and logged out,
hopefully never to have to struggle with their
fancified gui again
