and now I've taken it out altogether after some more FPs. At the moment
the local_WORDWORD_10 & 15 rules someone posted here (forgot who -
sorry!) are the most effective extra SA rules I'm using. A lot of the
stuff that BigEvil picks up either hits WORDWORD or DCC or both anyway.
The clever HABEAS_FORGERY rules do quite well too. BACKHAIR does ok but
often on messages that WORDWORD has picked up anyway.
