SpamBayes, which is based on math suggested by me as an improvement to the approach in Paul Graham's seminal "A Plan For Spam" article, and supplemented with a great observation from Tim Peters that the "Unsure" range of spam/ham classification is very useful, won this comparative testing against PopFile.

The test was slashdotted today.

John Graham-Cumming, who is responsible for PopFile, Tim Peters and I are all members of ActiveState's Anti-Spam Task Force.

I must admit I'm competitive enough to enjoy that sort of thing. ;)

(Note, John is doing a fantastic job at documenting specific tricks used by spammers.)
