I hate spammers

Something like 75% of the mail coming in to my machine now is spam. As my server is only ickle, it's getting too costly to filter it through spamassassin, and so I've decided to just delete messages unread if they're addressed to some of the aliases I have, and I'm coming --><-- that close to deleting any message from particular countries unread. That includes Russia, the Ukraine, Korea, Japan, China and Mexico. I'm sorely tempted to do the same for any mail purporting to come from AOL, Compuserve or Hotmail too.

Does Compuserve still exist? I see lots of compuservers appearing in HELOs and EHLOs, but as far as I can tell they're all spam.
