Increasing scores "in general" is correct. However, the scores that I
increase are from sampling hundreds of spam mails that affect my
clients. In "my" case, this works quite effectively. Like I said, I only
have 100+ clients, not 100's of thousands where this, of course, would
not be advisable.

My success rate is as close to 100% as you're gonna get. Everybody's
happy !! ;-)
