A good compromise is to augment autolearning by filing ham that doesn't
hit BAYES_00 but has autolearn=no in an unsure folder. Ham is very
easily learned so this doesn't involve much work in the long-term.
Obviously you learn any spam too, but that's the easy part.

You can also aid autolearning by adding some personalised negative
scoring rules e.g. pattern matching on your message-id's in
reference/in-reply-to headers.
