Two points:

 1. The tag is actually "spam,", so you are safe as long as people don't put
a comma right after the word 'spam'.

 2. You can change this, you just have to manually edit your configuration
file.  The FAQ has lots of details about changing the options - you're after
the Headers section, and the header_spam_string option.
