Some people have asked me about keyword filtering (blocking email based on words in the body of the message) and my response is typically that filtering of email based on words used in a context you didn't expect will occur and make your users very angry.

Blocking mail by keyword is considerably more likely to cause false positives than score-based filters. Some examples: State of Virginia. Breast cancer study. The city of Intercourse, Pennsylvania. News about assassinations. Jokes or news about certain highly-advertised drugs. Free software. A sextet. (Or sextuplets, or cities like Middlesex, Essex, Wessex, etc.) John Hancock You can probably think of more examples.
