--As for the rest, it is mine.

It's a redefinition of both, yes.  It was partly given in the original 
thread as a help to understand what was happening - and it was listed as a 
*temporary* fix, until the rule has been stabilized.

Discussion on both of these rules is ongoing at the moment, and I wouldn't 
advise the above fix unless you are following it. It's likely that it will 
double-score some of your spam, or drastically change the meanings of the 
rules from what is shipped, if not now than soon.  Putting the 'score' 
lines in your local.cf or user_prefs should be fine, but I'd avoid the 
definition lines.  (`/etc/mail/spmassassin/local.cf` is the usual main 
editable config file for spamassissin, and `~/.spamassassin/user_prefs` is 
per-user configs, if you have that.)

The correct score has been pushed, as Simon Perreault mentioned.  Taking 
out anything you've done and running sa-update should get you a working 
ruleset.  (If you've increased the score of either one in the normal 
fashions - using local.cf or user_prefs - that should be fine.)
