You're right.  8-)

Your striping looks too dark to me on my monitor - I have #f4f4f4, you have
#dddddd; can we compromise on #e8e8e8?  That looks a fraction too dark to
me, and will probably look a fraction too light for you.

You've made each radio button line up directly under its heading; I
deliberately hadn't done that.  It looks nicer at first glance that way,
but I've found (through extensive usability testing 8-) that it's easier to
use when the radio buttons are physically closer together.  They still lay
out sensibly (in my environment at least - was the layout bad for you, or
did you just want each button directly under the heading?)

I like the fact that you can view the messages - that's been on my to-do
list for ages!  And pre-classifying messages in the Unsure list is another
good idea - nice one.

Yes please... having both is confusing to users and a pain for developers.
If you'd like us to share the work, let me know - the way the HTML is built
has changed dramatically, for instance, so I could do those bits (though I
still prefer my way of laying out the radio buttons...)
