I expect Alex had this mind:
# When scoring a message, ignore all words with
# abs(word.spamprob - 0.5) < minimum_prob_strength.
# This may be a hack, but it has proved to reduce error rates in many
# tests. 0.1 appeared to work well across all corpora.
abs(p-0.5) < 0.1 is-same-as 0.4 < p < 0.6; Classifier._getclues() doesn't
return any word with a spamprob in that range.
