But you can email them (support@...), which I just did. :^)

It's been up and down, but mostly good.

Managability is nice, but obviously each person gets different kinds of
email that they 'want', so I can see sharing affecting false positives and
false negatives in a bad way...

One thing I did that helped was trash all email that comes in to addresses
I never actually use any more.  (Mail aliases at my domain.  Boy, I guess
having different contact addresses for different projects was a _bad_ idea.
It just multiplied the number of times spammers tried to email me. >:^P )

I don't think I've looked closely into them.  Once they turned on some of
the new stuff though (RBL being part of it, I think) a few months back,
my greymail folder shrunk from ~1000 per day to ~20-40.

MUCH more managable!
