[hosers-announce] spam filtering?

I'm thinking about setting up a spam filter for myself on charybdis, because
I now get too much spam to complain about manually. Hence, a few questions
for everybody:

1) What would be a good spam filter to use? (I was looking at Spam Assassin.)

2) Would anyone else be interested in using a filter?

Spam Assassin can be used as a site-wide thing, or can be used on an
individual basis. If used on individual accounts, it can be set to filter spam
into a seperate folder (via procmail), to dump spam into a file, or to feed it
to /dev/null, among other things. A site-wide setup is more efficient, but
I'm not sure if it's individually configurable, nor would I want, e.g., for 
all the spam to end up in one place to be dealt with manually, since that 
would end up being my job, and what I want is *less* spam to deal with.
