Per the Wikitech's guide, we've set up an spam filter that will discard any mails with +3 spam score.

However it seems that score with +11 is stored on admin queue.

Either the wikitech's config is not working or mailman is doing something wrong.

2017-03-22 08:18:12 <mutante> revi: maybe the regex thinks it must be X-Spam-Score immediately followed by 3 +'s, but in reality it is X-Spam-Score: <number> and then +'s
@ #wikimedia-operations in IRC.

Configured wikinews-l (receiving about 700 spams in the queue daily) to use that settings. Let's see if queue decreases.
