It depends. Preventing packet flow from a rather more carefully
selected list of prefixes may actually make sense.
These for example - www.spamhaus.org/drop/
Filtering prefixes that your customers may actually exchange valid
email / traffic with, and that are not 100% bad is not the best way to
Block specific prefixes from China, the USA, Eastern Europe, wherever
- that are a specific threat to your network .. great. Even better
if you are able to manage that blocking and avoid turning your router
ACLs into a sort of Hotel California for prefixes.
