[Spambayes] Spam which made it through the filter

One idea that came to my mind is that perhaps all url: token weights
should be multiplied by 10 or something. Or by 100. So if you ever get
spam from certain address, then that is going to get filtered the second

Of course, spammers might get around this by adding good urls... :-)

I believe that SpamBayes has to eventually dig into Received headers,
and check the address where the spam originally came from (convert the
ip address to host name perhaps).

The message below has (in addition to $RANDOMIZE bug that spammers will
fix) many words that I never get in any of my good e-mails. But the
problem is that if the spammer has a huge dictionary, which is likely,
then learning these does not do much good.

The message below made it through, and I probably will discard it for 
the sake of training the filter, as it contains so many "good" words.

Have you seen more spam messages which contains "intellectual words" 
rather than childish disguises of whatever is being pushed?
