Someone tried to spam this list, but it was rejected because only
members are allowed to post. However, it snuck by SpamAssassin
with a score of -98.1. Whoah!!! Further investigation revealed
that the spammer faked the source address as "AffiliateOffers at amazon.com",
and SA's default installation whitelists amazon.com.
I removed all default whitelists from SA, and recommend you all do the
same. (Delete /usr/share/spamassassin/60_whitelist.cf)
Obviously, a spammer somewhere has downloaded SA... the default
whitelists are now officially useless.
