Totally rewrote the article today to make it more straightforwardly "how to". Below is some commentary that I excised from the previous edit because, well, this kind of judgmental commentary belongs in Talk instead of the article.

Most users, particularly those who are familiar with peer-to-peer spam fighting software (like Cloudmark's Safetybar for Outlook) will require patience with Thunderbird's bayesian filtering. Bayesian filtering alone is unlikely to be as good as P2P approaches. To date Thunderbird does not have an antispam application sufficiently accurate enough to "turn it on and forget about spam."
