Hi Tim,

I beg to differ. Rules ought to be tested again a sizable spam/ham corpus before being released into production. We need this , or an equivalent method, to make sure rules work as intended. Such not giving false positives with not just one specific rules but also their combination with other rules. e. g SpamAssassin teat rules this way.  

Without a sizable corpus we don't know of any unintended rules .  
When new rules have been tested, these are released, and the user base  can test against their own corpus or not.
