Suggestion to GMail Spam Fighters

I went through more of my spam folder and found more false positives.  I have a suggestion that I think will help.  I think the filters need an update.

Specifically, I am suggesting that you allow users to make a custom filter like this:

  1. If it is called spam by GMail, AND
  2. It contains any of the following words:  Watch, Viagra, Diploma, Degree, or any Russian Characters, THEN
  3. Delete it permanently.

This would reduce my spam folder by a dramatic amount.  I could then look inside it more frequently for false positives.  Just the Russian Character one would get rid of a slew of mail.  Hopefully, they will improve this aspect of the product.  The point of email is lost if a message never makes it to the recipient because of too much spam.
