Description Dreas van Donselaar 2009-05-04 07:37:29 UTC
The Pyzor public database has two values for each digest - one "hit count" and one
"whitelist count". The Pyzor SpamAssassin plugin currently only checks/reports the "hit count" and ignores the "whitelist count". 

It would be good to include the whitelist count in the scoring, and to also report white messages as such to the public server.

One algorithm for comparing positive/negative listings is described at:

There seem to be many automatic (and incorrect) submissions to pyzor, and there are risks of spammers' whitelisting their spam. Hopefully the algorithm above willhelp a bit against both.
