False.  It just means that I get to choose the method of spam filtering 
rather than having my ISP choose it for me.

You're assuming that your spam filters will work better than the DNSBLs you 
dislike.  Experience with real mail systems (see papers at CEAS) strongly 
suggests that the error rate of a well run DNSBL is no worse and probably 
better than whatever you think you might like better.

Your "experience" with what you think of as "real email systems" doesn't mean 
jack when it comes to my business.
