Since they get hits, no need to change them. Once I get reports about a
sentence that has been modified, I apply that to the rules. I need
feedback for those, of course.
And it should still be fast in terms of CPU as if there's (rule
__ZMIde_SALE5) no "In den l" in the message, the regex shouldn't have to
search too much, right? At least I'd guess it's an optimized search
which compares in 64bit steps, which is 8 chars at once?

Look for the "Krankenkassa" ruleset, this has been very active these
last weeks. All the time modifications from them, I get reports and
modify the rules accordingly.

And not to forget: Long sentences mean chance for a false positive drops
