Yep. I certainly do. (Or I put the current favoured tag on, or I don't bother.)

I do agree with its vital and useful work - to save us from being
buried under an ever-replenished mountain of blatant fair-abuse, and
remember I'm a BIG FAN of fair use on en:wp - but I certainly don't
expect perfection from it. If you catch the bot making a lot of
errors, a polite note to Betacommand would probably help all.
