Work accounts generally also deliver the message to a quarantine of
some kind (spam folder) you can access and update them, while
automated list management often can't and it is either send it through
or delete it, and if deleted, no one ever sees it, making false
positives much more dangerous  :)

I've numerous times found valid messages and even entire threads from
this list incorrectly flagged as spam in my personal and corporate
boxes while actual spam that got through wasn't flagged... an eternal
cat and mouse game until spam is no longer profitable...
