newbie spam filtering with gnus

Several times in the last few months I've read through the Gnus manual
about filtering out spam, and I always end overwhelmed. But I would like
to accomplish something. I'm getting about 50 spam mails a day right now
in my POP "nnml:mail.misc". They are all pretty "obvious" spam of the
sort containing word salad under subject lines about discounted drugs
and impossible enhancements. I've downloaded Spamassassin, but haven't
been able to get my head around fancy splitting, connecting Gnus to
Spamassassin, &c. And there appear to be many other options besides
Spamassassin, which I am at a loss to evaluate.

Is there any sort of simple "starter kit" for newcomers getting going on
filtering out spam?

Thank you for any advice aimed at a not-very-technical person!
