It seems like the entire internet got hit with the latest viagra habeus 
forged spam.

Personally, I believe the SpamAssassin folks messed up badly by scoring 
these habeus jokers with a -8.  I've now set the scoring for habeus at 0.  
They apparently claim they will sue anyone forging their name...I'm afraid 
if I hold my breath I'm turn blue and die waiting.
