How to correctly label and filter mailing lists?

OK, I have a question! :)

Does anyone have a recommendation for configuring the labels and filters on mailing lists so that regular mailing list traffic goes to my mailing lists folder (label), but the occasional spams to the mailing lists go to my spam folder and not my mailing list label with the warning that gmail thinks it's spam but my settings overrode the placement of the email?

Actually I think I just figured this out. In my filters I had a couple filters where I had checked the never send to spam option. I removed that for the mailing lists. I don't want to be missing regular posts to the lists. Hopefully I can train this right.

I'll leave this up even though I think I answered my own question in case anyone else wants to comment.
