The spamd default is 300. See 'man spamd'. Why has this been changed in
the first place?

Btw, whoever knows why, knows where. ;)

A very brief googling seems to suggest this is an archlinux-ism.

The correct file to edit (and track down the current *custom* value of
60) depends on your distro. It's either some distro specific "default
conf" file, or directly inside your init script.

-- char *t="\10pse\0r\0dtu\0.@ghno\x4e\xc8\x79\xf4\xab\x51\x8a\x10\xf4\xf4\xc4"; main(){ char h,m=h=*t++,*x=t+2*h,c,i,l=*x,s=0; for (i=0;i<l;i++){ i%8? c<<=1: (c=*++x); c&128 && (s+=h); if (!(h>>=1)||!t[s+h]){ putchar(t[s]);h=m;s=0; }}}
