Rejecting anything for any reason is appropriate as long as the sender
gets a reasonable non-delivery notification.   But, you aren't
providing a particularly useful service if you reject reasonable
content routinely.   As I mentioned, google gets it wrong regularly,
and you didn't answer my question about why you think you can do it
better.   And I only know that google gets it wrong because they toss
it in a spam folder that I can check myself.  Most of what they
misclassify would have been bulk-mailed stuff, but it is stuff that
I've requested or mail list messages where I am subscribed.
