Me too, since a couple of years.
I do not have any negative issues to report and I encourage everybody
who cares about their customers to filter the routes listed in DROP.

I know that DROP blocks some name servers used by pharming gangs. E.g.:

A customer of mine found out that he was infected by this malware when
he noticed that he could not resolve anymore his web sites hosted on my
network. My authoritative name servers are protected by DROP and the
recursive name servers configured by the malware ( and
others in that /20) were not able to reach them.
