Thank you for that advice.

I gets what Debian provides. Sure I could build from source
but I have dozens of servers to manage x a number of updates
per year. If I do this I'm inclined to try and find a version
from a year ago that I had a wonderful level of confidence in,
build it for all servers, and put any Debian updates on hold.
I have 4000 users so the idea of a) a version that, at least
with spam a year ago, just worked, and b) no database changes
to have to manage... no readmes to watch out for, no clients
bitching at me because their sweetly tuned and beloved bogo
has to be updated again. Again, sure I could automate and
manage this stuff under the hood but I had the experience of
a delightful system that just worked, without any issues,
for well over a year... then about 6 months ago updates and
"improvements" started to cause me grief.

That x 4000 users... again, great.
My quest remains, does anyone know where I can get a year old
version of bogofilter ?
I'd at least like to set up one server with the older version
and compare for myself against current versions whether it
really is better according to my observations and guidelines,
