I run public systems (mostly mailing lists) with SA set at 4 or 5
(depends on the day of the week and other events).  I haven't seen any
paypal (or other) slip through yet.  One way to tell is to look at the
X-Spam-* headers and see what the value is set to.  The one that started
this fork in the thread was a 2.6 primarily because the user's IP
address is listed in Sorbs (he's sending email from a dynamic IP rather
than his ISP's mailserver)
