What do you mean by "works"? I suppose that you're still using the
bogofilter plugin, which would have already dealt with the message
before it even reaches this filter rule. i.e. it never reaches the
filter rule.

Things get confusing when you mix up threads. You were calling
bogofilter from with a filtering rule. I was referring to other
bogofilter arguments. See `man bogofilter` and `bogofilter --help`
and it might become a little clearer.
