How anti-phishing is giving me more spam

I hate to write this one, for fear the spammers will learn from it and send more. But really ...

I'm getting spam from a particular sender. Same old thing.  But this one looks sufficient like a phish ..  well, our corporate anti-phish technology is triggering on it and removing the URLs. Which means I can't use the legally-mandated URL to opt-out.  So I get more spam from them.

It kinda sucks.  Protection implemented for the best of reasons, to block phishing, is making spam more prevalent.

Damned if you do.
