Hi Bèr,

Thank you for replying to my suggestion, about cooperating to fight spam 

You suggest that a few trusted site owners cooperate together, in a small 
group, to exchange information as a starter for all the bayesian tokens.

This is interesting, but I was thinking about something on a much larger 
scale, which is perharps beyond the scope of this list, and probably 
un-doable and unrealistic anyway.

I don't understand the technology used by the spammers (their tools are not 
Open Source!), how they can use a simple robot to post spam from apparently 
different IPs.
I was hoping that there was a way to force all the virused, wormed, trojaned 
Windows boxes and unpatched websites used by the spammers to get fixed or 
shut down...

Anyway, thanks for replying.
