Spammers not trying anymore?

Are others seeing the same as me?

In the last couple of weeks, it has not been unusual for the SpamAssassin score to be 20 up to I think one was 50+. Have the spammers simply stopped trying to tune their spam to evade these filters? Do enough prople see the spam and react that it is not worth it to them any longer? Am I just noticing something that has been going on for a while?

I can't decipher all of these (let alone figure out how many points they each cost), but it seems as though if he'd've fixed all the cruft in the header (including the bad clock and bad dates) he might have reduced his score. Even then, however, he'd still be stuck with all the URIBL scores.

Agree with Wazoo, this does seem to be a newbie at work.
