Feeling tainted

[ #12422 ]

I've recently upgraded SpamAssassin to the latest version including new Bayesian goodness so I've been looking for spam to train it on.

Now the NMS support mailing list gets spam. Lots of spam. As much as 30% of the traffic is spam which, for some reason, sourceforge doesn't filter out.

My procmail rules filter out mailing list messages into their folders before SpamAssassin runs on the rest. I forget why but it means that all this spam sits in the nms-support folder and for the most part I ignore it. But now I've been going back and filtering it out by hand into a spam folder to pass to SpamAssassin.

I've only been through 300 or so of the 4,500 messages and I feel slightly queasy. I'm off to do something else for a while...
