Then you're doing it wrong.

And you'd discover for yourself that its a dumb move to nullroute or
depeer with everything you can think of, trying to block spam

Shouldnt be too hard to find that out even if you run a small local
ISP in montreal, given the huge number of chinese / vietnamese people
I saw there (they'd probably all use shaw and bell anyway)

If you didnt attend the MAAWG mtg in montreal late last year you
missed out on learning quite a lot of really operational spam
filtering, none of which included "nullroute whatever you can"
