Sadly, it looks like it's over the default line. Using SpamAssassin (2.31) with the defaults. I get

Well, let's take a look:
NO_REAL_NAME (0.5 points) From: does not include a real name
GAPPY_TEXT (0.4 points) BODY: Contains 'G.a.p.p.y-T.e.x.t'
H a r v a r d L a w S c h o o l
DOUBLE_CAPSWORD (1.1 points) BODY: A word in all caps repeated on the line
Note sure about this, since line-breaking is unclear, but I think it has to do with "DMCA" being repeated in a line, as in
"... US Copyright Office's DMCA Rulemaking, proposing an exemption to the DMCA's anticircumvention provisions ..."
CLICK_BELOW (1.5 points) BODY: Asks you to click below
"The Rotisserie implements an innovative approach to online discussion that encourages measured, thoughtful discourse. Click on the link below to find out more or to download the software"
EXCUSE_1 (2.3 points) BODY: Gives a lame excuse about why you were sent this SPAM
"You are receiving this email because someone (perhaps you) requested that your name be added to our mailing list."
(frankly, that does sound spammish!)
The web version had some differences, and I had originally tested that. It doesn't have the line which make it fall foul of the EXCUSE_1 test. A small update on the web turned out to be enough to fall into a porn test, which isn't triggered in the email-version,
PORN_3 (0.5 points) Uses words and phrases which indicate porn
And the magic words are:
(?i-xsm:\baction) : (SDMI) were quashed by an RIAA letter threatening legal action under
(?i-xsm:\bhot) : for such hot-button terms as "Tibet" and "democracy."
(?i-xsm:\bstrip) : featuring music by the White Stripes and their creative cohorts, Red
That's "3 porn words in the whole message body", and adding an update about "legal action" put it over the threshold with "action" (lawyer jokes about old professions are coming to mind ... oops ...)
Spam-wars, spam-wars ...
