The only choice is no, do not block based solely on a RBL or DNSBL list.

I am deeply involved in e-mail servers and the un-ending war on spam. We may
win battles, but the other side moves to adapt.

Things you have to remember:
1. There is no perfect RBL or DNSBL list!
2. If a human is involved, mistakes will occur!
3. Computers and programs are created by humans!
4. If the war on spam could be won by blocking using a RBL or DNSBL, it
would be over by now.
