    Certain range.  Here it is things scored between 5 and 8.  5 is where
things are considered spam.  8 is where I reject things outright.  12 is where
autolearn is set.  I want to send things in that range to the Bayesian
classifier so the score would creep up hopefully to the point of being
rejected.  Comes out to about 1-2 a day.

    Simple concept, if a message scores high enough (25 is default) you just
string the connection out for 5 minutes.

    Depends on what you consider wasteful.
