I don't know who counts as "regular", but that would've rejected
quite a few useful messages in the past month. For example, 
top-level domains .uk, .se, .fi and .ws are listed, as indeed about
half of Europe. My present address would thus also be blocked,
even though "" has always had perfect whois info in RIPE, 
but doesn't accept that because it's not
maintained by .fi registrar.

The postmaster, abuse and DSN lists would be more useful, but even
they are problematic - I gave up using them here a while back because
of increasing number of false positives (sites whose problems had been
fixed ages ago but still listed at

I would recommend against using on the list.
