It's specifically tuned for email. It could probably be hacked to handle
non-email content, but I wouldn't bank on it being effective. Not that I
don't think that it shouldn't be tried, just that there should be a Plan B
for if it doesn't work.

Plan B would possibly involve CRM-114 for learning and matching spammy text.
