hehehe..

So, I recently turned on the LJ comment -> email thang -- ya know, the one where it emails you all the comments involving you.. And, one of my recent posts involved my taking work home with me.. and then someone replies with how he can work from home..

This tripped the spam filter here at work. :) hehe.. having that much "work from home" in one message pushed it ever-so-slightly over the tolerance and it got flagged. I mean, there were other things adding to it's score, all the LJ emails are close to begin with, this was just the final nudge it needed.. funny..

I'll have to remember this email as another example why we shouldn't lower the tolerance any (there are enough people bitching that it's set too high so the question comes up every so often).

If you hack the tolerance, you need a hefty whitelist :P

we're not allowed to whitelist. There is one global tolerance setting for the campus, and we cannot alter the rules that give scores or set up individual whitelists or personalized tolerances.

It's the way UCCS operates, "We'll tell you what you get and won't turn on the option to allow you to personalize it". Every time I have to interface with them counts as one of the worst aspects of this job.

Ah, I see, it's not you hacking the tolerance, but UCCS assclownery.

Yeah, there are a plethora of redwood forests stuck up their collective asshole. Enough to repopulate America's forests (mind you, it would be an ass forest at that point).
