On the 2nd day of October, Bill Kendrick said to me:

They seem to be smart enough to have picked up on 
Mo<random_crap>rtg<more_crap>age in HTML mails - i.e. adding bogus tags in 
the middle of key words to fool the filters, which get ignored by the html 
renderer.

At least, they seem to be catching more of this style spam in the alst 
couple of weeks (since I installed apt-rpm and upgraded my box) :)
