A munged message would "contaminate" razor database with extra things
which do not really belong to the original spam message. I don't think
this is good. Many more people will benefit if nobody submit munged messages.

If you want a quick method to remove the footer, this is what I use:

#!/bin/sed -f
: mas
t vale
$!b mas
: vale
/^-- \nTo UNSUBSCRIBE, email to .*\nwith a subject of .*/d
