We could discuss this further here but I'd like to refer you to http://www.bgl.nu/bogofilter/tuning.html
which details a process by which bogofilter can be optimized.
The process is onerous and requires a considerably larger number of messages than the 2,000 each that you mention. It can also be well worth the effort for a prospective production user. I don't mean in any way to imply that you should have done all that, plus the equivalent for your other tested packages, by yourself; it would have taken you months. I just want to avoid leaving people with the impression that your table reflects the performance of which bogofilter is capable.
