Opinions/facts on haveibeenpwned.com?

Someone in our local SIG raised a question about http://www.haveibeenpwned.com. 
 It had been promoted for some time, after every major security breach of account 
credentials, as a place to check your accounts.

I haven't seen any reports of problems related to it, nor does a quick Google 
search turn up any.  There are some kudos from people I would generally trust to 
know what is going on.  But I haven't heard any first hand experiences, either.

The site is registered to:

Anybody know him?  From some stuff on his blog, he seems reasonable, but he 
could be a fake with an attachment to the Russian mob and a good command of 
written English, for all I know.
