It would serve the general issue of constructive discussion.

I made up my own theories but refrained from posting them, although i am
now sad about the consequential waste of bad pun and fake commiseration.

To my best knowledge, "X-Spam-Status: ... tests=...,LDOSUBSCRIBER,..."
says that the "From:" address of the mail is subscribed.
If this sign is missing, the person-like entity which wrote the mail
could still be subscribed by another address or other means.

Nevertheless, if i have no other indication then i normally add a "Cc:"
to the thread starter if i do not see LDOSUBSCRIBER among the spam tests.

... which in this case is indeed my intention because i have nothing
useful to say about the OP's original problem.

Have a nice day :)
