'Low' and 'high' spam score thresholds?

Hello all...

Just a quick straw poll.

We get on average 15-16K messages a day, of which, in general, 40% is
now categorised by various means as 'rubbish' (senders on RBLs,
SpamAssassin tests, etc.) ...

At the moment I have the 'low' spam score at 8, and 'high' at 20,
making the distinction between '{SPAM?}' and '{SPAM}' in Subject: header

I'm considering dropping the 'low' score due to the increasing number
of things hovering around a score of 6 or so, and now '20' (at which I
also do 'striphtml' as a mandatory action) seems a little high...

What in general are other people using?
