Default Where are the spammers?

Since I put a server online in a data center about a year ago I've been logging 2000~6000 rejected spams and relays a day. Now for the last couple weeks this has dropped to less than a hundred a day. I would think this is a good thing but I'm wondering what happened? Did some major spammers get taken offline or did I just lose their focus?
System6Hosting.com, ISPConfig 3, Debian.

Well they might be afraid of huge number of rejection and decided not to come again.
