Oddities of meaning.

I use Eudora for email (it's paid for by my workplace, even for my
home installation).  Anywhatsis, it's got a built-in "nastiness"
checker.  I've found that it's quite amusing to see what will and
won't set it off.

For example, when I write the sentence "You don't pretend that you
are better than you are.", the word's "don't pretend" are marked as
being "hot".

But when I write "All you say is lies.  All you will ever say is
lies.  You shall never speak the truth unless a weapon is at your
throat.  You are beneath the regard of any and all decent human
beings.  The world would be vastly improved by witnessing your
lengthy and agony-wracked demise."  Not a peep from this nastiness

Ah, keywords, ya gotta love 'em.
