I only checked my Gmail spam folder in the beginning, and practically never since. It would take a huge amount of time to do so on a constant basis, and in general Gmail's filtering is quite good...

Spam doesn't go to the Trash folder does it? So False Positive will still be missed?

Is there a need to check your Trash folder? Those are the ones YOU deleted, YOU KNOW YOU DELETED them.
BTW, I haven't clear the Spam box since Nov. 18, it has 1826 spamails(ding, new vocab) now.
