Noticable drop in spam emails

I just noticed a considerable drop in the number of spam emails I get everyday(hour, minute..second!). A quick search pointed me to McColo's hosting service being shut down. Its just unbelievable to me that just one service like that could be responsible for 75% of the junk I get is...is just mind-bottling.

Anyone else see a dramatic decrease in spam?

I never see my spam anymore. It's filtered away and doesn't really bother me like it used to.
