I can take this, cos it's in my timezone, if no-one else wants to. I figure 
the key point about the random word spam is that it's just trying to 
overwhelm the bayesian filters. Personally, I'm finding them _slightly_ 
effective (2 or 3 a day slip through if they hit the right words) but not 
significantly more than that. Fundamentally, they still have to put words in 
that sell a product, and that screws them over.
