Oh, ok.  Before I start from scratch, then, maybe I should ask about spams
with hundreds of random or gibberish words.  Do these muck up the 
databases?  They seem to be classified ok, and the clues aren't any 
of these gibberish tokens, but I know I trained on a few of these and it seems 
like they would skew the statistics.  What's the recommendation on this
type of spam?
