Deleting all but 650 of each of my ham/spam, deleting my hammie.db
and spambayes.messageinfo.db, and retraining caused me to almost
immediately get a few spams classified as "ham 0.06". I haven't see
spam classified as anything other than spam or unsure for quite some
time. So I guess that didn't work out too well :(
