This might be well dealt with by changing the unknown word probability to 
indicate a stronger spamminess.  By default, it's .5, iirc.  Perhaps we 
should do some experiments with pushing it to .6 or .7.  My corpus has 
virtually none of these spams, so I can't say what would happen, and I 
imagine that our test corpus has relatively few of them as well.  Comments
