A bit overly aggressive on the claims. Most of it is 'mostly true', though
exaggerated. But it looks like 'just another bayes' to me, and lately
spammers have gotten pretty good at defeating statistical filtering. :-(

The most effective single method I can think of at this point is resolving
URLs in the body of spams, and if they resolve to china, korea, brazil or
russia -- bin them. That should be pretty hard to circumvent since doing
so would mean spammers would have to give up their
'offshore-bullet-proof-hosting', and I dont think they want to do that.
