Skimmer accuracy had gotten much better, but it is certainly not perfect yet. 
The accuracy of the spots coming from the RBN are generally higher than those 
coming from human beings.

There are techniques for maximizing the odds of getting spotted by a skimmer, 
and for minimizing the skimmer busting your call:

Send CQ TEST and YOURCALL at the same speed
If you send your call twice in a CQ, leave an extra half space between the 1st 
and 2nd instance of your call
If you have a call that is often busted by humans, (ie, TN copied as G or C) 
use extra spacing to lower skimmer busts
