Subject Need more white rules
Date Sun, 04 Apr 2004 04:44:23 GMT
OK - want to start a discussion on this. We're getting very good at 
black rules - but I think the next frontier in accuracy is improving 
white rules.

Now - I know white rules are harder because we can't have rules that 
spammers can user to bypass filtering - but - having said that - I still 
think its doable.

The reason for more white rules is that black rules are not 100% 
accurate and if a message hits enough - it becomes a false positive. 
White rules act to retrieve a message that might otherwise become spam 
except for the white rules drag it back from the dead.

So - looking for ideas and looking to encourage an effort to focus on 
white rulesand widen the gap between spam and nonspam.
