Without commenting on SpamSieve, I would note that "Bayesian" anything is a somewhat meaningless term, akin to "artificial intelligence". There is a great book on the (actually quite short) history of statistics called The Lady Tasting Tea, and it has good material on why Bayesian can mean anything that is close to "gets better with more good data", which is true for almost anything.
