Yeah, right.

I've had enough problems with utterly bogus spamcap blocking that your
statement ("the system seems to be working well") seems completely ludicrous
on the face of it.  False positives are indeed a (big) problem with spamcop.

The "solutions" you list (blacklisting users known to have submitted
wrong/malicious reports) seem absurdly inadequate.

No problems in the last few months though, so I guess I can cross my fingers
and pray that they've gotten a clue...
