I find that if you take one or two of the fax spammers to court and
get judgments against them, you get on their bad list and suddenly the
amount of fax spam you receive is dramatically lowered.

That's why it's illegal to send fax spam, yes. Has been for well over
a decade. An afternoon in small claims court can get you a judgement
