Yup, while implementing the math I noticed Paul Graham was dividing
apples by oranges.  I went for a less adhoc approach.  But there's
still a lot of adhoc stuff, like why use the top 15 words?  Why 15?

Thanks.  I came across that yesterday and bookmarked it, didn't have time
to actually read it in detail.  Incidentally, it was during my search for
databases of spam messages.  Lots of databases with e-mail addresses and
DNS names and IP addresses, but no actual full message databases.  Anyone
know of one?  Since this isn't really OpenBeOS stuff, please send any
replies to the bedevtalk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx mailing list.
