Programatically, that's ridiculously simple to overcome. There's nothing
to it. It's barely "obscure."

Statistical spam filtration works great :)
Dspam FTW!

It catches 98.119% of all my spam.

Not that any of you care, but here's the statistics from my mail server.
				SPAM messages	Good messages
Since last reset 		622 missed 	38 missed
				27872 caught 	6565 delivered
				97.817% caught 	0.575% missed
Total processed by filter 	622 missed 	38 missed
				27872 caught 	6597 delivered

I get a lot of mail and dspam does an excellent job of filtering it. And
the best part: I don't have to work on maintaining blacklists or rely on
any third party (other than the developers of the software) to keep my
spam filtration up to date. It evolves to keep the spam down.

Of course, I'm probably preaching to the choir. </rant>
