I have a very large training corpus, so I'm seeing well-
separated distributions of good versus spam probs, with a 
sprinkling of "unsures" scattered through the middle. An 
uncertain cutoff at 3 sigma from the means should work, but this 
notion needs some testing. That chi2 test is definitely on the 
drawing boards, even if only for comparison purposes...

Death To Spam!
