I found this on the lists a couple of weeks ago, but had to shorten the
names as they gave me errors.

uri PUBWEB_GEO_CHECK1 /^http:\/\/.*\.geocities\.com\//
score PUBWEB_GEO_CHECK1  15.0

This will add a score to everything from geocities.com.
You can add this to /etc/MailScanner/spam.assassin.prefs.conf
and change the score accordingly.
