no, the right thing to do is add lots of rules to spamassassin's
local.cf so that any spam scores higher.
if you reduce the threshold so that nearly every message gets tagged as
spam, you may as well just give up on having a list at all.
instead, spamassassin should be configured to assign a higher score to
spam - and the only way to do that is to give it extra rules with which
to identify spam.
