I was marking the pages as spam & puting them for speedy deletion and
stoped doing it to create a Perl bot so I can automate the process 
(lasty it were near a 100 pages daily).

I spend some days geting data and training classifiers and geting some vacation 
for Hallowen (in a place with bad GSM coverage) and after it linuxcon
and elce in Barcelona my home town and preparing a Perl course (held the last saturday)
with the local mongers had wasted my free time to read the list.

The bot is not ready but I have the title off all the pages with some of them clasified to
be used as traning or test sets.

You can count with my help (be it data or write acces of any kind).
