Now that I finally have a reasonably reliable home internet connection, 
I'm seriously considering this myself.  

KMail's spam filtering via bogofilter is b0rked in intrepid, and I turned 
it off - and it turns out I get very little spam through gmail, anyway.  
I'm _not_ entirely sure how I feel about that - somebody else shouldn't 
be deciding what's spam to me, especially since I work a helpdesk - but 
I've never yet found a false positive in the spam folder.
