Second, as I indicated, more than a few users put the price in the text of the ad too so the presence of a price per se is going to be an issue anyway. I would think that either you would have to purge ALL text items that look like a price from the body of the ad, or restore the prior line (PRICE: $xxx) just after the location information.
You could always avoid having something looking like a price (which I suppose MIGHT trigger some Spam filters) by just putting the price in parentheses after the Location, so something like:
LOCATION: Westminster MD, United States (245)
which certainly would not trigger any spam filter....
It is helpful to have enough information in the email notification to know whether or not it's worth logging into the website and looking up the ad.
