Yeah, this is a big problem in spam classification. You have to be able to
learn very subtle differences, without losing the ability to handle massive
differences between blatant spam and ham mail. It's all about identifying
the right features to classify on.
What is amazing is how quickly people can do it though, isn't it.
We only need to look further than the subject in maybe 10% of messages that
make it through the Bayesian filter and other protections, and even when we
do it takes only moments.
So to solve the spam problem, first, solve the AI Problem.
