Microsoft Antigen: Brain Dead Content Filter

February 22nd, 2008

Microsoft Antigen for SMTP found a message matching a filter. The message is currently Purged.
Message: “Re_ Pbl.spamhaus.org down_”
Filter name: “KEYWORD= profanity: piss”
Sent from: “Daryl C. W. O_Shea”
Folder: “SMTP Messages\Inbound”
Location: “psp/TRACYSV05″

Piss! Oh noes! The utter profanity of replying to someone who said “Am I blocked? Did I piss someone off?” is simply unacceptable.

I’m simply amazed at the number of rejections I get from users of Microsoft Antigen for SMTP (part of the Microsoft Forefront Security product family) based on single words that I learned during my years in Catholic schools. I think the Forefront Security product family has no forebrain. It’s no wonder why most content filter based anti-spam products have such a bad wrap.
