Ways to assassinate press releases

SPAM ASSASSIN has killed several press releases sent via email during the past month. Here are the reasons for the kills:

  • Reason 0.1 NO_COST: The body of the press release said "No such thing as a free lunch".
  • Reason 2.1 NA_DOLLARS: Text mentioned "a million North American dollars".
  • Reason 1.7 INFO_TLD: The press release cited an URL in the INFO top-level domain.

I avoid all these things in mailings that I generate.
