Splonk is a Spam eliminator that works by first accepting certains items that you always want (such as mailing list messages), then rejecting certain people you never want mail from. After that, it looks for common spam patterns. Not all spam may be rejected by this section but it does keep the noise down. Any mail that gets through all this is tested to see if it is actually for you, either by direct addressing or by coming from someone you know who hides the recipient list.
