I can say for a fact that the AWL has been keeping my false
rejection/tagging rate well down, even after applying some things
(ImageInfo mainly) to get a grip on the image based spam. Without the
AWL, many a financial newsletter would have gone down the drain... As
it is now, I cannot find one case where they've got tagged or removed.
Haven't seen the wildly fluctuating "missfires" of the AWL that some
report either.
So I'll be keeping my AWL on, for that crucial score averaging I need.
