I use that resource too.  

My web server's malicious robot list is shared with the mail server - so robot sources get locked out from sending mail.  At the firewall level, I use a TCP TARPIT, and simulate one (returning "host prohibited") for UDP and other non-connecting protocols by using a "recent" list that traps on any non-permitted port or protocol (which is everything not specifically permitted).

Anything that does no harm to those who behave is fair game in my book.
