We currently use DSPAM to front our trouble ticket system and
have found that a statistical filter is way, way less work and
less prone to false positives than ad hoc rule systems. It also
supports our favorite backend database. It sounds good to just
say ""Casino slots" in the title is a pretty easy catch..." but
when you start having thousands of rules, it gets unmanageable
pretty quickly. My two cents on rule-based versus statistical
filtering.

Cheers,
Ken
