So you're Debian's Mr. Antispam, my humble apologies.  

What I am missing on your statitics page is when statistics started
and spam/ham ratio over all postings, not only reviewed ones or did I
oversee sth?  Moreover monthly summaries to judge current situation
preferrably with graphics (cf webalizer statistics) would be a plus.

I can only speak about what I received on 20+ mailing list (mostly
non-Debian) during the last month.  Current spam ratio is quite
acceptable for me ( <10 out of >500 per day including personal mail ),
it's a single keystroke to move spam to a special folder that is fed
to spamprobe train-spam hourly.  I can live with the current

Finally, if you want me to help on anything Debian related, nag DAM to
reopen my account (which one you can deduce from my gpg key).  Being a
DD from '95 to '04, I won't do any substantial work on Debian without
a vote.

Please don't Cc: me when replying, I might not see either copy.
