I apologize for not doing that... however, had I, I would have still 
asked the question because the advice given is not suitable for an 
enterprise deployment:

If you read further you'll see that you didn't answer my original

Using procmail or a client side filter to file spam based on an 
X-Spam-Status line is not appropriate for a large, or even moderately 
large, end-user focused deployment -- that's why I asked if others are 
altering the default scores.

Again, a thousand apologies for making you repeat yourself.

That all being said...

Is anyone using these rules for spam detection?  If so, how have you 
been scoring them?  I'm glad to have a confirmation that 0.1 is 
obviously not enough but I'm curious how others are scoring these rules; 
given a general spam target of 5.  I'm thinking of scoring in the range 
of 1.5 - 2...
