Re: Clickbait

Why on Earth should one suppose phishers would present a big fat static target for naive pattern-classification?

I would expect exactly the opposite. Phishers achieve a small degree of success with the naive pattern-classification systems running on wetware. The more naive the system, the higher the chance of success.

BTW, is anybody interested in helping me out by setting up a joint bank account I can use to smuggle embezzled money out of Nigeria?
