The thought occurs then that perhaps some kind of addition to a Bayesian
filter is necessary, so that if a message has above a certain threshold of
unknown words, it scores highly. Even better might be to compare every word
against a dictionary, and again give high score to a mail which contained
lots of non-dictionary words. Lots of problems with this, of course, not
least being the CPU cost of such an approach.
