We use SBL+XBL for blocking at MTA level. I've almost never seen problems
with it. There must be something about the UK providers which makes them
appear that often on the list ;-) When using RBLs I see that most problems
come from lists which use spamtraps. F.i. SORBS puts such a list in their
overall list. So each time someone manages to send a spam mail over an
ISP's legitimate mail relay to that spamtrap that relay appears on the
list. That results in a false positive rate of something like 0.001 %
which can be a lot of messages if you get them by the millions.
