But if we can work out that it won't work now, we can save ourselves some time
and hassle. Specifically, these autoresponders demand that the spammers
either validate an email address or use a known good 'from' address. So they
will - when spamming someone harvested from debian-devel, they'll set the
from address to debian-devel.
Personally I think bayesian based spam filters are a godsend. They're a bit
naive in places such as being unigram or bigram based, but that'll probably
get fixed in version two. And already they are still amazingly good.
