I _know_ the scope of SPF and DKIM. They both don't say that mail is ham or
the spam, they only say if it's forged:
- if it's forged, it's likely to be spam.
That's why many people reject mail that (hardly) fails SPF (and maybe DKIM).
- if it's not forged, we do not know anything about it.
That's why the SPF_PASS and DKIM_VERIFIED scores are nearly zero by default.
Spammers use SPF, maybe they (will) use DKIM, but the last fact above makes
us safe not to trust any mail that passes SPF/DKIM checks.
What you are doing, is that you (as I repeat) intentionally make all
DKIM-signed spams pass, so spammers using DKIM will pass your system unless
they get ~50 points from other rules.

I have never said that DKIM or SPF is bad. I said that scores for them
passing are and should be (nearly) zero.
Giving them that big negative (well... low) score is just stupid.
I strongly advise you to remove that customisation and let other rules do
their job. Otherwise you'll get flooded by spammers who DKIM-sign their
