it is not *my type of mail*

it's the type of mail of different customers from different senders and 
the same on the setup of a friendly sysadmin for his *different* 
customers where it also hits more ham than spam

we both don't waste our and the time of our customers with investigate 
it while a sane rule doing deep header scans (which is *always* 
dangerous) could just have a lower maximum score to never reach 1.5

my first job as sysadmin is to make sure mail get delivered and *after 
that* filter out spam comes not the other direction

so anybody here: do what you want, i lowered the score for damned good 
reasons and don't care about your false positives or not

why i waste my time to point out problematic defaults instead just 
change the values local and be done which will happen in the future when 
each and every time a big discussion starts telling me what i have to do 
or not
