Take for an example a message cross- or multi-posted to many users (e.g. perhaps from a mailbox dictionary attack):  Individual users will be unaware of its bulk nature and perhaps ONLY the bulk nature will classify it as spam.

So, you can pass your knowledge on to the recipient, leaving the
disposition up to them.   For example, I think google is probably as
good as anyone at that sort of bulk-discovery, and yet I regularly
find things they've tossed in the spam folder that are not spam.   Why
do you think you have less false positives then they do?
