writes in with a NYTimes article on a new approach to spam detection
that claims out-of-the-box improvement of 1 or 2 orders of magnitude over existing approaches. The article wanders off into human-interest territory as the inventor, Steven T. Kirsch, has an incurable disease and an engineer's approach to fighting it. But a description of the anti-spam tech
, based on the reputation of the receiver and not the sender, is worth a read.
