Curious, mine doesn't do that:

It prints that message if "Log Spam = yes".
As the spam checking switch can be a ruleset, it is difficult to say that
the spam checks will never happen for any message. so it prints it at the
start of *potentially* doing any spam checks.
If you aren't checking for spam, set "Log Spam = no" and it won't bother
you any more.
