spambayes.sourceforge.net is hosted by SourceForge, but we're responsible

Sorry, I don't know what that means. You can download a spam filter from
the SpamBayes web site, but that's all. We're not a spam reporting service,
and don't post anything about spam (or about anything else) to anyone
("Search Engines" or otherwise).
It's possible that a spambayes user who received your mailing complained
about it -- and, based on what you say next, it does sound like spam to me.

While definitions of spam vary, unsolicited bulk email is one commonly
accepted meaning (neither "one time" nor "targeted" change that a thing is
any of "unsolicited", "bulk", or "email" -- and given that you say it was
sprayed all over the world, "targeted" doesn't apply in reality).

What posting? Please point to it, or to a copy. I really don't have a clue
as to what you're talking about. As above, the spambayes website doesn't
post anything to anyone about anything.
> Further legal action is under active consideration
Nice to meet you too -- heh.
