Oh, it is. Nearly all of our spam gets "bayes_99ed". It's the single most
effective rule. It depends on your bayes db. F.i. ours has tokens back
more than 12 months. If you follow the sa-talk list you will also see that
there are high doubts that "bayes poison" actually works. If your bayes db
fails on many spams than this can have many causes f.i. you didn't learn
enough to it recently, or the wrong stuff or you are losing tokens too
quickly by expiry or your customers do get a lot of mail which contains
tokens which are also in spam or ... "bayes poison" is just the least
