I would say so. I'm a contributing member there with dozens of domains which are used for generating spamtraps and a spamtrap focusing on comment spammers [1]. The input data is quite a good indicator for network problems before major blocklists take notice and for gathering evidence on latest malware trends (hosting and distribution).

[1] Hint for lurking spammers: My spamtrap is not hosted on my production servers, so listwashing my ip addresses will not prevent spam from being automagically reported Wink
