To AWL or not to AWL...

Ok -- I've seen people lately suggesting that if you are using MailScanner
along with SpamAssassin, that turning auto-whitelisting OFF is a good idea.
Does that appear to be the general consensus?

I run MS w/ SA for our entire site (along with sendmail).  This handles mail
for about a dozen people.  Currently, I have AWL on.  I use this to add
misidentified "spam" emails to the whitelist.

Is this the best way to do this?  Or should I disable AWL?  And, if so, then
is the best thing to do for misidentified spam to add them to the
spam.whitelist.rules file?  Or somewhere else?
