BSpam declared inactive.

Shortly after the last release of BSpam, I
took a new job and moved across the country. When I moved, I
closed my account with my existing ISP, started getting my mail via
POP for easy portability, and started using POPFile.
At that time I put BSpam
development on the back burner, fully intending to return to it one
day. Well, almost a year has passed, and I still find myself fully
absorbed in other activities, so I am officially declaring BSpam
inactive. I encourage you to look at other packages such as CRM114,
bogofilter, or POPFile (which does its job pretty darn well).

Version 0.6 includes the ability to read from
gzipped corpora to conserve disk space for
those operating under a tight disk quota.
Also in 0.6 is a complete rewrite of the "full"
HTML parsing code. It is now much faster,
tables are handled better, and it also keeps
track of background and font colors so
