gmail / google as a major source of spam

I happen to manage a mail server with roughly 6000 accounts on it and my personal email address has been live now for roughly 13 years.  I post to technical forums on the net so my address has been harvested a lot throughout the years.

We use a mailfoundry appliance and the spamcop RBL to help combat spam. 
Both of these allow spam submissions to help stop new outbreaks.

More and more I am reporting spam to google for gmail accounts.  At least
10+ a day.  This is stuff that is making it past mailfoundry + spamcop and 2 more RBLS.

I expect google to be better than this at this point.  They have the resources and technology.

Data might be data, but spam is annoying!
