Take your pick, anything's better than Anthony :)

We're a low volume high school site, 1150+ users (max 350 active 
mailers) max. 2,500 inbound messages per 24 hours, reject 2-400 before 
they are accepted, postmaster (at our site) gets a transcript of each 
refused message and I read them all.

Were we a large volume site I'd still use the same methods for refusing, 
but I'd probably be blocking less incoming stuff and relying more on our 
(brilliant) anti-spam and AV software. I'd never block at the firewall, 
since I'd never be able to see whether a client were genuine or not, 
people would never be able to contact abuse or postmaster (rfc2821).
