    Is anyone noticing a change in the Gmail spam filtering?

    I seem to be getting a little more mail than normal going to the spam folder

    I have a big set of filters and labels, but I don't like to use the "never mark as spam" option becuase Gmail is good about getting the good to the labels and the spam into the spam folder.

    I'm wondering if anyone else is noticing a difference of it it's just me.

    I've gotten a couple more false positives lately but nothing really unusual. It seems to have an ebb and flow some months it's spot on other months there are a few false positives.

    Did it break the other way? For some reason my spam folder has jumped to almost 700 total over the last 30 days (that's a 50% increase!) and I'm getting a couple per day to my inbox now that need to be marked as spam.

    I wonder who sold me, probably should be asking who sold me first now. 100% and climbing fast. A few a day, even if 3 spams per day tops, is still annoying/distracting since my inbox is usually quiet so new stuff grabs my attention. If you can wait you're filtered to a label ;)
