From what I can tell, the original had the following header:

So did Ged's last response:
> X-Spam-Rating: daedalus.apache.org 1.6.2 0/1000/N

It may have been included when Ged replied, which is how it got attached to 
his message. Which, in a way allows blocking of spam and spam-related 
threads, whether it is pro or con the originating message.

However, a completely unrelated recent thread had these headers:
> Subject: RE: can't fine ModuleConfig.c.
> X-Spam-Rating: daedalus.apache.org 1.6.2 0/1000/N

What this tells me is that whatever is performing and inserting the 
X-Spam-Rating header is worthless to this list for this kind of spam.

But, it is always easier to identify ex-post-facto spam than a priori spam.

At the very least, the moderators (Ask?) should be able to identify the 
poster's originating subscribing infromation, unsubscribe them to the list, 
and/or notify them if it came from a compromised account.

And of course, send whatever info we can to the RBL folks (or your favorite 
public list of spam offenders).
