Leif, is it really worth possibly missing some "good" messages just to save deleting 30 spam messages? As a human, you can accurately delete 30 spam messages just from the titles in a couple of seconds. Although maybe your filter just moves them, otherwise how did you even know that you missed the message with the three !s? Just imagine all the wonderful discussions of RPG's F R E E opcode that you are missing!*5 :-) Trying to get people to change their natural writing style so their messages get through filters seems like a losing proposition to me. (I've never used any anti-spam measures beyond ignoring it, and I get around 2 - 5 spams a day. Usually I delete them without even really noticing I'm doing it.)
