I think I have now accumulated enough spam/nonspam classified emails to
make a statistically signification observation: it seems like all emails
classified as spam from these lists were send from ipv6:

SPF: PASS with IP 2600:3c03:0:0:f03c:91ff:fe61:86ce

All emails from bufferbloat.net lists are failing DKIM (because of the
mailing list footer breaking the DKIM signature) which might be worth
fixing, and failing DMARC because all mailing lists fails DMARC (however
google does not have a strict DMARC policy so that shouldn't matter, I

By the way, it's not just you, either. I have emails from others on these
lists in my spam folder.

The distinguishing factor seems to be whether the email was sent from the
lists.bufferbloat.net ipv6 address. Unless this address corresponds to some
kind of tunnel broker possibly also used by spammers, I can only assume
this is some kind of bug (after all, it was spf validated so the address
shouldn't matter at that point?).

I'm going to see if I can file some sort of a bug with special googler
powers, but I probably won't be allowed to tell you anything if they reply.
