We just went through this ourselves, setting the ignore flag tells the postmaster to not process the message at all (so it never gets in to OTRS). In our case we move the spam messages to an external cyrus folder using a PreFilter that we check for false positives from time to time so that is the behaviour that we used.

You would have to have at least one user assigned to the queue to view it for false positives a spam user perhaps. I guess it really depends on how much spam you get, but we took the stance that we don't really want the spam on OTRS at all.
