Mind of a Spam Filter, part 2

by Chikashi

The same spam filter to which I referred previously is proving to have a very particular mind.

Its reason for tagging an email as spam this time:  ‘Found word(s) cum in the Text body.’

Like the previous time its imagination ran amok, it picked out a sequence of letters which forms an unrelated word. The offending word, which occurs twice in the email, is ‘documentation’.

I’m starting to wonder whether the filter is a freeware.
