If you just want to make sure they end up in the quarantine area and are
never passed on just give them a big bonus.

In "spam.assassin.prefs.conf" you could add:

header          BUUSSPAM        X-Spam-Flag =~ /YES/
describe        BUUSSPAM        Detected Big Ugly Upstream Scanner SPAM
score           BUUSSPAM        100.0
