DESCRIPTION ^

This is a Bayesian-style probabilistic classifier, using an algorithm based on the one detailed in Paul Graham's A Plan For Spam paper at:

It also incorporates some other aspects taken from Graham Robinson's webpage on the subject at:

  http://radio.weblogs.com/0101454/stories/2002/09/16/spamDetection.html

And the chi-square probability combiner as described here:
