Even if it only serves to annoying and slow down spammers, I'd use it. I noted ~2000 zeusmail.org subs overnight and it concerns me that this is just the opening salvo since this will drive lists which are already closed to subscribers only to moderate traffic even from subscribers which, for sites like ours with 400 or more lists, isn't really practical. Banning the domain and blocking the IP(s) is only a temporary fix.
