There aren't enough of these mini-spams coming down the pipe to bloat
the database. Considering there's only, say, 500-1000 distinct words
on these "spurped" sites, and many of the words are already known to
the database, it's just the same as an email with a 5-10k text
Currently, my spam + good + virus databases (including hapaxes), are
still under 15Mb total size. That's from an initial training corpus
of about 15k good, 50k spam, and around 15k messages through the beta
proxy in the past month...
Good messages: 21,676
