[Dshield] Whom do you trust?

Don't place 100% trust in spamcop.  I have observed systems identified as
spammers incorrectly due to faulty header parsing.  An example was a case
where someone behind a firewall reported spam which resulted in spamcop
listing their firewall as a spam relay.  While I believe they are on the
right track and provide a useful service, it can always be improved.

True, but:
spamcop.net rely on them. And spamcop.net has a valueable reputation.
