Bogofilter should decide to delete or to be unsure ;)? This is asking
for trouble, an option that is just useful for some people. It's better
to always check mails marked as spam and mails that are definitively,
without any doubt spam + send in high ammounts, should be deleted by a
filter rule, or as already mentioned, better directly get banned by the
ISP filters.
