I wouldn't recommend ignoring the low confidence matches.

From what I can tell from my own results the lower the confidence the further back into your tree you should be focusing. I've found 9 matches (MRCA 5th - 9th GGrand parent) so far and all of them have come from the lower end of the confidence scale.

I attribute the results to the DNA getting "diluted" over the generations as opposed to the test giving false matches.
