Actually, I was thinking of disabling the AWL feature altogether ... it 
might make a few extra false-positives to need to release, but I doubt it 
will make a huge difference ...

Maybe disable AWL and leave score threshold at 5 ... ?  I can adjust 
after, based on # of false positives ... if false positives don't go up, 
then without AWL causes no adverse problems ... then I can look at 
adjusting score threshold down while watching for false-positives ...
