Darn pharmacists

I’ve always wondered why the univeristy’s copy of SpamAssassin is very forgiving to emails advertising sites that sell various penile-enhancing drugs and the like. Last night, I learned that it’s because some legitimate mail within the pharmacy department contains the names of these drugs, and SpamAssassin was blocking these messages.
Darn those pharmacists.


  1. Bet they are popular people on the Friday night black market though 🙂

  2. They should have used whitelists not changed the scores ont he bloody rules – fools.
    whitelist_to would have sent them everything 😉
