Take a look at the date of that report. That it's from almost TWO
YEARS ago! The spammer/anti-spammer arms race began a long time ago,
and will only get worse.
I've seen numerous harvesters with randomized User-Agent strings
crawling a mail archive of mine, even though all output is filtered
through Apache::AntiSpam. They are NOT stopped by simple, obvious
regexps. Obfuscation is trivially easy to identify and defeat.
