I've never actually seen a spam that has '[spam]' in the subject.
I save the RFC822 headers of mail I receive, and of the 4,652 headers
I have going back to Feb 1, there are 13 that match 'grep -i spam'. Of
those, 8 are from a thread "Subject: kyxspam: isc loses mind" and 5 are
from a thread "Subject: More member-only anti-spam".
On the other hand, I average 20-30 pieces of spam a day that do NOT
contain 'spam' in the Subject: header. A better heuristic is called for.
