[Dshield] Overreaction?

AOL is not the only one.  One of our local ISP's (that is nationwide) made
changes to stop spam and the viruses.  As a result their customers could
receive email but could not send email.  They are in the process of getting
this fixed now.

I'm reading reports that AOL has blacklisted a large number of ISP IPs
because the IPs have been found to be sending virus/worm material.

Can anyone confirm this, and does anyone else think, if true, this was an
overreaction on AOL's part?
