I use bigevillist, FVGT,OACYS, backhair, weeds, chickenpox,
popcorn (and some of my own). They seem to do a good job 99.99%
of the time, I get a few FPs from the bigevillist, but I just
prune those out as they come.

Put them in /etc/mail/spamassassin as so weeds might be
/etc/mail/spamassassin/, popcorn
/etc/mail/spamassassin/ SA will parse anything located
in /etc/mail/spamassassin ending with .cf as a config file.

Then replace the file with new contents when ever they change.
