Because it might not be spam, but only a false hit ??
Because blocking mail by the list could be considered some kind of sensorship ??
BTW, because you used multiple X's in 3 different words, your mail also
scored 1.896 points for 'Uses words and phrases which indicate porn
(3)'. This is not very much (and is compensated by using a In-Reply-To:
header worth -5.029 points, so I did receive your message, but you get
the idea :)
I use spamassassin on my home and work mailservers (when I receive this
message back from the mailinglist I know it has been checked 4 times by
various spamassassins) and I really like it, but even spamassassin is
not perfect enough to use it to really block mail.
