Maybe I'm wrong on this, and I'm not a mailadmin anywhere nor have I been or pretended to have been in the past. But I'm pretty sure FB only sends you mail based on the prefrences you choose, and I know this is the answer you where given so mostly a statement. How does that equal spam :)

I'm a long-time SpamCop member, so I forwarded your mail to the
deputies. They are aware that facebook's servers have been
sporadically listed, and one of them specifically said the following:

"Not much we can do about the listings.  They're sending spam to our 
traps in large enough numbers that raises the score to a listing level. 
  If Facebook were to follow best practices the spam complaints and
trap hits would drop to levels that keeps them from getting listed."
