With all due respect, it is NOT silly.  My email provider is my employer
and I have very little influence over their spam filter.  After the DML
was marked as a spammer I asked nicely and they unmarked it, but this
condition is not permanent.  If another message comes across the DML
that scores enough points on the spam scale (perhaps the word SE_IEST in
capital letters) my access will be cut off once again.

I do not have this luxury.  I have no control over the factors that get
an email address marked as a spammer, but the person sending the message
does control the content of that message.

It does not bother me to have the DML unmarked as a spammer; I realize I
need to do this now and then.  I wrote this message as a caution to
others: the language you choose for your messages may limit the number
of people who can receive it.
