How do you figure? Have you looked at the retension time of individual
records in the db? The refresh rate of the entire database is fairly
high. I doubt you get much better results after the first few days

I've always been skeptical about this myth surrounding Bayes. It's
just one test out of a thousand and it's easily fooled as well. I
trust the auto-learner to do it's job and I haven't seen others get
significantly better results regardless of effort put into Bayes.
