    Default Any clue what spam flag "FB_NUMYO" is?

    A user recieved an e-mail that had a bunch of SPAM flags, but there was one I didn't recognize. "FB_NUMYO"

    I've done some Google searches and cannot seem to turn up any information about it that I understand. Does anybody know what it means?

    Code:
    [root@mail2 ~]# grep FB_NUMYO /opt/zimbra/conf/spamassassin/72_active.cf 
    ##{ FB_NUMYO
    body     FB_NUMYO               /1[0-9][\s\.]?y[\s\.]?o[\s\.]?\b/i
    describe FB_NUMYO               Speaks of teenager.
    ##} FB_NUMYO
    ##{ FB_NUMYO2
    body     FB_NUMYO2              /2[0-9][\s\.]?y[\s\.]?o[\s\.]?\b/i
    describe FB_NUMYO2              Speaks of 20+ year old.
    ##} FB_NUMYO2
    For example, not the 40 year old virgin.

    I, uh, don't get it.

    Can you explain further?

    I think what it means is that that the flag is triggered if the body text contains something like "19 year old" or "21 year old". These are Perl regular expressions; in a somewhat more common (if less precise) way of expressing the strings they'd read:

    1* y* o*
    2* y* o*
