I am unsure of your antecedant, so I'm unsure what you mean by your

If you look at the X-Sp*m header of your 2 posts, you will see a list of
words.  Those with high values like 99's increase the likelihood that
your post will be classified as sp*m.  That is why I use an asterisk
with them.  The problem words in your own posts are:

  agggggr (only 1 g, probably part of vairga (letters transposed to
protect us all))
  addddds (only 1 d)

Bear in mind that each and every one of my posts carries an automatic
strike against me.  Even though I'm willing to use Brand*n in my
signature, I'm totally unwilling to create a separate e-mail identity
just for caml-list.  So every one of my posts has 1 correctly spelled
occurrance of Brand*n in it.

I bet, furthermore, that you will not see the word S*attle (correctly
spelled) in the X-sp*m header of this post.  This would disprove your
claim about * being a red flag for the filter, unless the filter does
not in fact report full information about how it makes its decisions.
