That's a terrific idea if you want to stop me from posting to the lists. Lots of
other people too. Lots of colo facilities won't provide PTR records for you and
won't delegate small subnets to you to provide your own PTR's. ie: worldcom and
telia being two good and current examples. They also don't provide mail relays.
Moving my server is not an option for me.
Besides, lots of spammers have rDNS.
