Well, in my opinion, most smaller operations and especially users don't have a lot of business or association with Asian IPs, so I know many operations that will have a complete block on any IP known to be from that area.

I call it "intraspam". Very hard to deal with.

Harder than interspam?  Paul's "Great Cascade" case, as well as
seem to be issues about proper use of (proper) mailing lists.

IMHO, the effectiveness of ordinary spam filtering is a sort of
illusion brought about by big numbers law.  For example, some claim
that it is highly effective to reject based on geoip lookups...
