I wish spamassasin had a “Totally Fucking Stupid” rule… I would make it the most heavily weighted anti-spam rule on my server. And… if I really wanted a papercut, I'd use a nice American piece of paper, well versed in the ways of freedom. Who needs a communist papercut anyways? You cut your finger, and pretty soon it'll want to cut your whole hand. Laff.
