My CRM114 install has grown up some, and now
dislikes much marketing-sounding prose, including
some newsletters from the IT Media and quite a few
press releases.  I think I'm OK with this, as long
as I accept that I'm running more of a machine-aided
bullshit filter than a filter for U(C|B)E as such.

I have also gotten a few false positives on password
reminders from web sites.  (Which is, of course,
the sites' fault for not supporting OpenID.)
