This is very much like trying to run an automatic categorization
system or tweak search engine results so the best pages come up first
-- you can only get so far with algorithms.
If your readers are tolerant, you can just go with the flow, for
example, Moreover's search engine feed told me about the death of a
cartoonist, because he drew the cartoon 'Barney Google'. Didn't
bother me in email, though it would have been awkward if I'd
published the news on my web site.
To keep from making dumb mistakes, you need human editorial control.
Just a glance by an expert before you publish will avoid most
Hope that helps,
