Well, in my case, it's a necessity. I require guaranteed resources,  
bandwidth, etc. And I need full control of my own box to customize to  
my needs.  It's a costly option, but if I could get all that with a  
ten dollar a month shared hosting plan I would. But you can't. The  
shared offerings are heavy in hype.

As to spam filtering, I'm not suggesting any particular solution, only  
that one should see if two are really needed. In my case, I also have  
some comment-related plugins that also do a little filtering of their  
own, so the problem is reduced at the front gate.
