The *POINT* was that too often, a compromised end-user machine can send *THOUSANDS* of messages. Not tens. Not hundreds. Thousands. Remember - if you're catching 1M spams/day, that means that the spammer has to have a machines*rate product over 1M spams/day. If there's 10 billion spams/day total, the total machines*rate product has to be over 10G. And if there's only several million source machines, that means the rate has to be in the thousands.
