I use Razor plugged into SpamAssassin. So I can't tell you how effective
it's been by itself; the combination has had maybe two false positives
(both ILUG mails, strangely enough)

*shurg* You're already checking your spambox for false positives. This
is no different.

Having spent a few months playing with procmail filter lists and the
like, I can't see why anyone would bother spending time redoing what the
SpamAssassin guys have done. It's an extremely effective system, is easy
to configure, and can even be made completely transparent to users (i.e.
the 'visible' part of the mail never gets tagged, just the headers)
which is ideal if you're running it sitewide. And a particularly neat
feature of it is the adaptive whitelist, which modifies itself per
sender address over a period of time, i.e. as it becomes more certain
that that address is or is not a spammer.
Anyway. No association with the SpamAssassin people, just a happy user.
And if using Razor means even one less spam in my inbox, I'm using Razor.
