All our e-mail is heavily spam filtered fortunately, through
quite a few filters which sum up to a final spam score and when
that is too high, the message is "diverted" to the spam
In your case, the "NiceBayes" spamfilter somehow decided to give
the message quite a high score and that got a relatively large
(maybe you should stop using all capitals such as ALTREP in your
 subject !?)

We, the volunteer mailing list moderators, get (daily or weekly, in
this case daily) e-mails from the spam software giving us a full
list of the filtered messages... However, we usually lack the
time to carefully go through that list, notably with R-help or
R-devel where that list is quite long...
so I had detected your "ham" message among the many dozens of
spam ones only a day ago, and released it..
