[Spambayes] Just for fun

I left this one out of the training -- the only reason it made it to the
Spambayes list is because I approved it. SpamAssassin knew darned well it
was spam, but SpamAssassin has been castrated for msgs sent to this list; it
was held for approval just because this list has a members-only posting
policy. BTW, that's the only "outside" spam I've seen mailed to this list
so far! On the radio yesterday, a news story reported that the US Federal
Trade Commission did a test, wherein they posted some email addresses on the
web, then timed how long it took for them to receive their first spam: 8
minutes. Surely they can speed that up <wink>.

Good! I get hundreds of Mailman emails every day thru python.org, so the
python.org + Mailman clues are (I expect) much stronger in my little
database. It *still* didn't get near my ham_cutoff, though, which is mildly
encouraging (granting that this training strategy is insane).
