so senders can now get more help on maillist with spam, this is
intended, but if still some samples is rejected one can pastebin
problems or register an account to show problems with default rules,
remember scores is regnerated so in praktical there is no static scores
in default spamassassin, this is why i still say that the rule are ok,
but the corpus miss more ham to that rule

it depends on who and where you send it, spamassassin maintainers dont
control the whole world of spamsassin servers that use there software,

this is how rules works, but local admins can compensate to free use of
spamassassin, maybe users just need to drop spamassassin and find
something better ?
if servers have enough ram it seems others just dont give a damm and
install spam signatures into clamav and reject at mta stage, better ?
