FWIW, a couple of my regular correspondents have said that DO generally does not have a great email reputation, and that they're moving lists to other platforms.
That's probably correct, but are there other cloud VPS providers that are better at hosting MTAs?
FWIW, mail.python.org which hosts hundreds of MM 2.1 and MM 3 lists including this one is a DO droplet. I do note that DO is currently listed at UCEPROTECT-Level3, but IMO, that's a racket. I.e. they list your hosts entire ASN ranges, but if your single IP is clean, they'll whitelist it for a price ranging from 25 CHF (about 26.50 USD) for 1 month to 90 CHF (about 95.50 USD) for 2 years
*I* have seen a lot of "spam" coming from DO IPs. Note this is "mostly" what might be called "E-Mail Marketing" and might be considered legit by some people, but I have been blocking /24 ranges of DO IPs.
