Quite. While I don't block these directly, I am much more aggressive with
checking the sender's details etc. It is also worth noting that the zen.spamhaus
list (From the PBL list) also contains IP ranges of ISP customer's IP addresses
that shouldn't be sending mail directly (As submitted by the ISP's) see here

This makes it rather easier to be more strict with the client connections.
