in the past few days i've just noticed a *significant* increase in
false positives in gmail spam filtering.  messages from senders or
lists that never tripped the built-in filter functionality now often
seem to trip them.

example:  an email in regard to an online order i placed with
petco.com (something i've done often) recently eneded up in the spam


anyway, if you use gmail, i encourage you to check the Spam folder
regularly for false positives.  (something i used to do, then didn't,
but now will do again)
