Spammers can install SpamAssassin as easily as anyone else, that's a known 
risk. Any rules we provide they can potentially test against their spams 
to minimize score.

How much they actually *do* this I can't say.

We could try it with one of your rules, and if it suddenly stops hitting 
then the spammers are reacting.

I think it has value, even if they do react.

   it also shuts down in sympathy when the servers at Microsoft crash.
