It is possible that a message is wrongly blocked once in a while, but the complaints procedure is there for when that happens. The ministry has consulted with regulator ACM and said that the regulator sees no reason to act against providers.

You can never fight spam at an ISP - besides the invasion of customer privacy, the false-positives are too dangerous. If I loose a $M contract because your spam filter got it wrong, that's YOUR fault: neither senders nor recipients can use "complaints procedures", because neither of them are aware that you killed their emails, least of all in time to prevent the damage.
