it's probably important to avoid the appearance of a conspiracy.
i will be blocking selected IP ranges for systems i handle, and i
will be selecting them myself -- although the company i work for may
sign up for the blackhole list (something that i thought was a done
deal but which is still being discussed.) the judge handling the
Compu$erve vs Cyberpromotions case inidicated that Compu$erve's
network was C$'s private property, and therefore Spamford is not
supposed to continue to send email into it after being told to cease
so block those netblocks, but you probably want to pick which ones
you block on your own.
