Personally I consider 25 spams/day too high, and last year I changed one 
account (and not an alternate identity of an account) when I started 
getting about 50 spams/day.  Since I use separate accounts for different 
purposes, the changes of adresse I had to do were manageable.
Now I'm back to the usual not more than 1 or 2 spams/day per account.
That's my way of not letting spammers rule my system.
Of course, it all depends on personal preferences and circumstances.
