Googles filters are garbage.  Problem not solved.  I still get plenty of 
spam markings by Google with the headers or something about the traffic.

I get multiple messages that fail the filter rule (same as yours) which 
stay in the inbox as well.

The only filtering system that's worked (so far) is the one in 
Thunderbird.  Also with the flow into Thunderbird, I don't use any spam 
filters, and never see any cctalk/tech messages left behind.

Useless data, in early days when there was unlimited email storage I 
thought I'd be clever and subscribe on both my gmail account and my 
personal alias for cctalk.  Didn't work out that way because so much 
screwing up by google.
