I review that folder ("unknown") every so often (a few times a day). But it 
keeps most of the noise out of everything else. The "probably spam" effect is 
one reason I don't discard things outright.

I also find it easier to review a single folder whose contents are almost 
always spam than to constantly have little bits of spam floating by in my 
normal mail folders.

If you want to pursue this discussions we should take it off-list to private 
email; we're not talking about Python any more.
