Are you using Microsoft's Anti-Phishing filter?

Hello everyone,
   There has been some debate on whether or not to turn on  Microsoft's Anti-Phishing filter that is included in IE 7. 
The largest complaint I hear is that it will slow things down. I know Microsoft has created a fix for it, and included 
it in MS07-016 Security bulletin; so maybe it works now.

   What I would like to know is:
1. Are you using IE 7 in your enterprise environment?
2. Do you have this feature turned on automatically?
3. Or leaving it up to the end user to configure?

   If you do not have the Anti-Phishing filter turned on, can I ask you why?
