Writing from my dynamic connection. :)
No, that doesn't evade the block at all. A dynamic connection will be
somewhere in the range blocked. Just entering block (for instance)
[58.35. and nothing else blocks a whole bunch of mail from, in this
instance, Israel (I think). (Dunno which country, really doesn't
matter, all that matters is spam came from their and it didn't originate
from within my country, and I do no foreign business.) All of you
complaining about blocking have one thing in common. None of you have
offered a home user any other FREE method of totally stopping spam that
does not include turning control over to someone else. Writing filters
is free (minus the time). Control remains with the user. Business
considerations such as VPNs and Nets that span oceans are not applicable
to a home PC. Many readers and users of Dshield are home users. IP
spam blocking works for home users and nothing else you have suggested
stops the spam cold.

Dynamic == Proxy for Bad Guy
Evades that country specific block pretty nicely doesn't it?
