It would seem that allowing something to reach a score higher than the acceptable threshold would be very innefficient, and should only show up in a debug mode.

I would want a spam filter to use simplest checks most likely to determine ham/spam first and only go for the more expensive and more risky checks if needed.

And once I have confirmed that it is spam, stop doing the checks.

I think I had one hit 80+ before... lol... but it was before I set spam assassin to delete spam.

The reason it does all the checks is because high scoring spam can be run through the bays engine if you have the self-learning flag turned on.
