I personally like the way DSBL handles this, if a spammer moved we will 
find out pretty quickly, if you list a /24 you will get in a lot of Ips 
that have nothing to do with the blocks, most of the time. For example 
spammers using a open proxy. 

DSBL is doing very ok there, its the only list i use for blocking at SMTP
