I agree Cygnus. The patent seems to say this approach would set very high thresholds in measuring abuse. That's one reason I am NOT saying that this patent definitely is what's in play. But it does describe a mechanism that could generate a lot of the signs we see. That is, if this patent is in play, then the thresholds are not being set very high -- or maybe they must be hair trigger because spammers are getting too subtle these days?
