Recommended Spam actions

Hi All

I am currently doing the following with spam:

Spam Actions = striphtml deliver forward postmaster at
High Scoring Spam Actions = striphtml attachment deliver forward
postmaster at

I have been monitoring this for a two months now since I have installed
Mailscanner, and have added all the necessary addresses into my
spam.whitelist.rules so I don't get any false positives any more. I would
like to remove the "deliver" option and change it to "delete" or "bounce".
What are you guys doing? Is it worthwile bouncing spam at all?

Just as a note on the traffic side, I get about 300 Spam mails per day on a
server that does about 5k of messages.
