I have been using it as well, and have not had one single spam hit me.
Then again, since I don't get any emails when a spam gets stopped, I
can't be 100% sure of what it is doing.  I've also had two comments
posted since I installed it, so I'm assuming it isn't actively blocking
non-spams.  Again, because of the lack of email, I can't be sure.
