We've been testing and it seems to work well, just like all of Anthony's
milters. You are right about reducing load, since the message is never
accepted and is not run through MailScanner or SpamAssassin. 

Since you are deleteing the message based on spammy URLS you need to be
careful which lists you are telling milter-limit to check against. Anyone
considering it should check out the docs at:


And this one is free :)
