    Still quite a lot of room for improvement if the false positive rate is 8%.

    Well I look at it this way: out of 251449 total comments, it got 141 wrong which is 0.05%. As for the false positives, I probably get one or two a week lately I’d say which is pretty good. Plus they’re easy to find as comments are sorted by spam rating.
