And thank goodness for that, your rule is WAAAAAY too broad to be useful
as it blocks the ENTIRE .info top-level domain (a very bad idea).

If you really want to do something that bold, at least limit it to the
debian list (note, that list-id is a guess, check your headers):

header __TD_DEB_LIST	List-Id =~ /<>/
uri    __TD_DOT_INFO	m'^http://[^/]*\.info[/:?#]'i
score  TD_DEB_INFO	1.0

Check the SA rules it hits and add them as dependencies to that meta if
you want to increase the score; if it previously got a -4 score, it had
to hit some rule to do that.

Again, even this safer rule seems to be the wrong approach.  I suspect
you have a custom rule that is the source of the problem.  Can you post
the offending message to a pastebin?  The scoring breakdown would also
be useful (re-run the message with `spamassassin -t <filename`)
