I tried the same as Asa did, and no, your message did not get marked as spam.

If you had actually read the article that I posted above, you would have known why not. In fact, the article mentions the very example you mention, that the only way for spammers to beat the filter might be to change their message to something neutral-looking like "Hey, friends, I thought you should take a look at this", but even then, the headers in their message, and probably their url too would give them away.
