In the subject line or in the body of the message? Some of those words are pretty common ("value" for example) so if you're blocking emails with that in the body you might miss some legit emails.

You spelled singles, business and professional wrong. :) Those words are pretty common in legit emails too. Your spam filter might work too well. :)

Heh, so I missed re-checking a few :). Still works well enough, even though on some days I still get 30 spams that manage to make their way through.

One of the reasons I like the email notification here. For some reason when I get more legit messages, the number of spam seems to get cut down, heh.

Ok, time for me to go to bed. I was reading your list and couldn't figure out why you included the word "96"...I kept thinking maybe it had to do with porn and you misspelled 69 or that 96 was some new scripting number for spammers, but then I finally realized what it was...

It was the percent sign "%" - Now tell me if that doesn't look like a 96 or what. Whew! I'm spent!

So hopefully I've added to the pointlessness :D
