[extropy-chat] spam & spelling?

The main thing I'm thinking of is particular words like viagra that
spammers know will increase a spam score dramatically. So they either
omit the word or misspell it in a trillion different ways. I think spell
checking incoming mail would help put a damper on that particular
annoying tactic. Similarly you could check for grammar,
overcapitalization, and other problems that spammers tend to fall into.
It wouldn't rid us of all spam, but at least the ones that get through
would make for more normal looking email.
