As far as I understand (AFAIU?), Gmail's SPAM filter varies per user,
which kind of makes sense.  On several occasions I saw the same email
being flagged as SPAM for one Gmail user, while delivered to Inbox of
another.  This time is no exception - I got Robin's email just fine,
and some other people found it in their SPAM folders.

I do get a false positive once in a while, but it happens so rarely
that I truly don't care. I'm ready to pay that price for my clean
Inbox.  I am yet to see a SPAM filter half as good as GMail's one.
