Here is another one successfully using bogofilter.
On my addresses @arnoldarts.de I get about 100-200 spam mails each day, where 
bogofilter is unsure only about 2-6 a day.

Why do I get so much spam? Because I write in mailinglists (like this one) 
which have public archives and because I have a homepage...


There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the 
Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be 
replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
