After a few weeks of testing, there are some results:

1. It works nicely. After I set up some work flow locally, it is not
   that hard to use the web interface.

2. However, if I interpret the serial numbers correctly, there aren't
   very many people reporting except me. Many possible reasons:
   a) Not many reporters.
   b) People only report DNSWLed spams that get through.
   c) People don't report from spam traps.
   d) People don't report backscatter.

3. Because I've got quite a number of reports, I hardly ever can see
   what happens, because my last 20 reports aren't usually handled (and
   that isn't necessary either).

4. There is a *lot* of backscatter to spam traps :-) Nothing new here.
