No; you could get "a score" with 17 decimal digits of precision, about 1 of
which is meangingful,.

That's what Unsure is for.  If you don't check Unsure msgs, you'll be sorry.
They split about half-and-half between ham and spam for me, and if the
system *could* have made a better jugmint about them, it would have.

If you do have the score, we've gotten mixed reports here about whether
sorting Unsure msgs by score is helpful.  I find that it is in my email, but
there are many exceptions (ham closer to high end of the Unsure range, and
spam closer to the low end).
