Thanks for the feedback.  We're working with a number of data
sources to improve the phishing hit rate.

I'm told that the latest 3.1.X SpamAssassin catches those pesky
stock spams quite well.  Let's hope they have 419s caught too.

But unless they advertise their own domains, SURBLs can't really
catch either of those types of spam.
