How does this effect the network? Surely, all of the transactions must be legitimate. Pointless transactions (spam etc.) will just get pushed to the bottom of the pile and basically discarded because of the minimal Tx fee so a spam attack would either have to be extremely expensive or just won't work... right?

you know there are other ways to attack the bitcoin network., instead of spending money on each transaction.
