It's not intended to make their life easier, but make a legitimate 
sender's life easier. It is far more annoying as a good actor to send a 
message only to have it bounce and not understand why. Not only that, 
but it should help reduce support calls if a legitimate sender can 
resolve the problem themselves.

Many spammers already run their messages through spamassassin on their 
own servers or local machines. Hindering legitimated senders in the 
belief that the information helps spammers is pointless; spammers 
already have many other means to get the same information.

You could try

	spamd-command=CHECK

instead, which doesn't provide a report.

Alternatively try

	cd com/snert/src/milter-spamc
	CFLAGS='-UHAVE_SMFI_SETMLREPLY' ./configure
	make clean build
	sudo make install

Similarly you can redefine SIMPLE_JUNK_MAIL_REPLY

	CFLAGS='-UHAVE_SMFI_SETMLREPLY -D"message was identified as junk mail"' ...
