I have spent the past 9 years working at a small ISP, where I manage E-mail, DNS, Web, and Voip servers for a couple thousand clients.

-1. Syneticon-dj is right. Not only is this site a bit player, it's one most serious sysadmins would never even use for a server with any diversity of clients whatsoever. Just as importantly, its mission to "force net admins to block port 25" is not a practical solution.

The BBC article seems to suggest that many spammers have voluntarily stopped spamming. Considering that Rustock went nearly silent before it was nabbed by Microsoft, one might suspect that those running the Rustock botnet caught wind of the effort to stop them (and believed it to be a legitimate threat), and thus most of them ran before someone put them in prison. It may also have been sold to some unsuspecting patsy to be caught with that hot potato.

@tomjerdz: And how many companies (last mile ISPs in particular) are using something like 800% of their allocation, thanks to NAT?

Well, that explains the dip on my graph in March, where incoming spam was halved again, but what about the overall decline between October and December, and another abrupt dip in December?

Strange that I couldn't find that in Google. :) It wasn't from lack of trying either.

Oh weird. Now it's working. This is the last thing I tried, so I'm guessing that's what fixed it. But it didn't seem to work right away either. I'm calling Heisenberg on this one.

Ok, I tried installing libapache2-mod-jk and installing tomcat6 as apt-get recommended when I did so. This still doesn't fix the problem with PHP5. It's also worth noting that the server is definitely running the new kernel as per uname.

Nope, no luck. I've even moved over entirely to the dist-upgrade configuration, and it still doesn't use PHP. mod_php is present in /etc/apache2/mods-enabled, and I've added that configuration file to the code in my question.
